People's Park (Newsreel #33)

In the late 1960s the University of California at Berkeley began buying up and destroying a nearby area populated by hippies, the poor, and other members of the "counter culture". In retaliation, the community laid claim to a barren block being used as a parking lot to create a People's Park. The National Guard was called in to occupy Berkeley and a young man was killed. This film documents the infamous struggle resulting in the destruction of the park.
Third World Newsreel’s historical Newsreel collection provides contemporary audiences with a vast archive of political documentary films chronicling the social movements of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
