can be seen at Santa Cruz Indymedia:

“There is a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part; you can't even passively take part, and you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop.”
Mario Savio—speech on Dec. 3, 1964 before a Free Speech Movement sit-in
at the University of California-Berkeley
