On May 22, 1969, supporters of People's Park marched on Shattuck Avenue in downtown Berkeley as they had done on other days in May to show their support for the park. Over four hundred marchers and some people who just happened to be on Shattuck at the time were herded into a parking lot, arrested and taken to Santa Rita prison. This program includes both reports of the mass arrest by Harlan Kessel and accounts, recorded the following day, of the night of terror spent by Robert Scheer and Paul Glusman in Santa Rita. This program was aired a year after the incident, as part of a series of programs on Pacifica Radio's KPFA-FM examining what happened that day. Contains sensitive language.
