Free Speech Movement

The Free Speech Movement (FSM) was a student protest which took place during the 1964–1965 academic year on the campus of the University of California, Berkeley under the informal leadership of students Mario Savio, Brian Turner, Bettina Aptheker, Steve Weissman, Art Goldberg, Jackie Goldberg, and others. In protests unprecedented in this scope at the time, students insisted that the university administration lift the ban of on-campus political activities and acknowledge the students' right to free speech and academic freedom.

Famous quotes containing the words movement, free and/or speech:

    I’m real ambivalent about [working mothers]. Those of use who have been in the women’s movement for a long time know that we’ve talked a good game of “go out and fulfill your dreams” and “be everything you were meant to be.” But by the same token, we want daughters-in-law who are going to stay home and raise our grandchildren.
    Erma Bombeck (20th century)

    To be free in an age like ours, one must be in a position of authority. That in itself would be enough to make me ambitious.
    Ernest Renan (1823–1892)

    Our speech has its weaknesses and its defects, like all the rest. Most of the occasions for the troubles of the world are grammatical.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)
