Text Description is below the image.
  • There is a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious -- makes you so sick at heart that you cannot take part. You cannot even passively take part. And you've got to put your bodies on the gears and upon the wheels and levers, upon all of the apparatus and you have to make it stop and you have got to indicate to the people who run and own it, that unless you are free, the machine will be prevented from working at all. (Mario Savio, UC Berkeley free speech activist, 1964)
