The following notes are from the back of the Gatefold:

This record is comprised of songs written by students about the protest movement,(The Free Speech Movement, or FSM) and the sounds of the October demonstration.
Unfortunately, no tapes exist of the terrifying roar of the 50 Oakland police motorcycles called in againts the demonstrators.
However, you will hear students telling why they feel their actions are justified, as well as on-the-spot recordings of the arrest of Jack Weinberg and the famous Sproul Door Incident.

This record is dedicated to all who took part in the free speech fight, and specially to those who went to Jail for the constitutional freedoms of al students.

I picked this LP up recently, and have never seen another copy. It appears to be quite rare, and a unique document from a vital watershed point in the American '60s. Just want to add that the sides appear to be reversed in the listing below, judging by the inner groove markings on the disc; side A is the one with the folk songs. Also the entry above refers to a "gatefold" but this is a regular single sleeve.
