On April 23, 1968, several hundred Columbia University students gathered to protest the Vietnam War and the university’s plan to build a gym on a public park. After tearing down a construction fence and battling with police, the group occupied several campus buildings. Negotiations between the university and the students failed, and six days later, New York City police were called in. Protesters and bystanders were beaten and seven hundred were arrested. The New York Newsreel film collective documented these events from the student protester’s point of view, including scenes with access inside the occupied buildings, shots of police beating students, and negotiations with campus authorities. close
