California IN BRIEF : BERKELEY : Anti-War 'Teach-In' Starts Spring Classes

January 23, 1991|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

The first day of the spring semester at UC Berkeley got under way in a manner well known around the country--with a lively campus protest in Sproul Plaza. "We're going to shut this campus down!" screamed non-student activist Jose Carrasco at an all-day anti-war "teach-in" on the central campus site of dozens of other such grievance sessions since the early 1960s. The rally, attended by 500 students, included faculty speeches against the Persian Gulf War. It was scheduled to start off a day of campus protests, marches and other actions by people with an agenda of grievances stretching back to the Vietnam War.
