The FSM Café: History, Memory, and the Political Legacy of Coffee Mario Savio and the Berkeley Free Speech Movement
"There is a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part; you can't even passively take part, and you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!" -- Mario Savio, Sproul Hall Steps, University of California, Berkeley December 3, 1964 ***** (Audio clip of actual speech)
