The event was called off at 6:15 p.m. amid violent protests and fires erupting outside the event, where hundreds protesters gathered outside the Martin Luther King Jr. Student Union Building.
Tensions rose shortly after a group of protesters wearing bandanas set fire to wood pallets and debris near a barricade. Protesters threw fireworks in the direction of police officers, who wore full riot gear and returned fire with tear gas. A light generator was knocked down and set on fire, where demonstrators surrounded the blaze with their signs in the air. Metal barricades set around the building were chucked into windows.
The Free Speech Movement (FSM) was a college campus phenomenon inspired first by the struggle for civil rights and later fueled by opposition to the Vietnam War. The Free Speech Movement began in 1964, when students at the University of California, Berkeley protested a ban on on-campus political activities. The protest was led by several students, who also demanded their right to free speech and academic freedom. The FSM sparked an unprecedented wave of student activism and involvement.
