Ed Rosenthal, Barbara Lee and Many Others Celebrate Peoples Park Anniversary In Berkeley
Here are some pictures from the 34th People's Park Anniversary
People's Park is a stretch of land South Side of the UC Berkeley campus, with rich history tied to the many movements of the late 1960's, most specifically the Free Speech Movement. 34 years ago the people took over this land and made it their own, it has since been a place of freedom and acceptance. We celebrate the Anniversary with a party like no other.

The 200 or so people who showed up for the Peoples' Park anniversary celebration on a rainy day is about 180 more than show up for any pro-war rally no matter how nice the weather is. For example, check out the College Pampered Rich Brats' so-called event the day before to support the drunken, coked-out pampered rich brat who occupies the White House. Is this what the N'Sync fan base has been reduced to?
