Part I: The recording contains the proceedings of a rally occurring on November 22, 1966 on the steps of Sproul Hall; put on by the Council of Campus Organization (CCO) and sponsored by Students for an Open University and Academic Publishing, Berkeley. The first speaker, David Friedman, a member of the Independent Socialist Club formally opposes Chancellor Roger Heyns's statement made the day prior --a call to convert Sproul Hall into an academic building-- framing this call as an attempt to detract from and eventually halt Free Speech Rallies. The second speaker, Bob Mundy, gives his personal account of disciplinary action taken against him unjustly by the University of California Regents and discusses due process on campus. Part II: Statement made regarding the Vietnam War; does not appear to have occurred at the rally on 11/22/1966. Part III: Humorous clip from a movie or TV show; does not appear to have occurred at the rally on 11/22/1966. Part IV: A Brazilian student makes a statement about the Brazilian ambassador’s visit on campus the following day. Mike Lauder, a member of the California College Republicans, voices his support for the aforementioned demands for due process on campus as well as takes a stand against the proposition made by Chancellor Heyns the day prior. Bettina Aptheker, a member of the Council of Campus Organization, formally responds to Heyns’s statement on points made regarding contemporary campus climate.
