Campus protest thoughtfully convinces the undecided

UC Berkeley is well-endowed — not only with resources, but also with a rich tradition of social activism. On the pavement covering Sproul Plaza, under the London Plane trees, protesters have assembled for generations to stamp their feet and shout rallying cries that tingle one’s tingly bits.
