Letter: The Free Speech Movement

Stephan Paliwoda’s letter (ADN, Jan. 7) describing the parallels between the Jan. 6, 2021, events at the Capitol with his description of the Free Speech Movement at Berkeley in 1964 repeats many statements from the time that were then and still are either not true or misrepresentations.

As a founding member of the Board of the Free Speech Movement Archives, I would like to direct anyone interested to an important resource of documents, photographs and publications from that time — our website, located at www.fsm-a.org.

I invite your readers to peruse our archive in order to make their own judgments as to his interpretations and conclusions.
