Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) protests and arrests at UC Irvine
Date Created: 1967-11
Description: The opening of UCI coincided with the politically-charged climate of the 1960s. Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), a left-wing radical organization started by students in Michigan in 1959, had an active chapter on campus. They led protests of the Vietnam War and fought for racial equality and academic freedom. This group of photos displays their gatherings on UCI campus.
