Two Photographs from 1969 Demonstration

These uncaptioned images accompanied an article in the May 1969 issue of Action, the monthly newspaper of the United Federation of College Teachers. Clearly representing a range of organizations and political positions, the focus of this demonstration was generally one that supported public education. Signs from SDS (Students for a Democratic Society) read "Tax the Rich" and "Student Power. " And AFT (American Federation of Teachers) signs read "AFT: Save Education" and "AFT Position, End Tuition." Others say: "Support your local college," "No Fees Please" "No Tuition No Cuts - Free Education" and "Share the Cost of Public Education - don't Ask me to Bear it all."
