What was the free speech movement and why was the SDS so involved? Group: 2

The free speech movement was a spark started in college campuses that really delved in on the issue of civil rights and later towards the opposition of the war in Vietnam. The movement can be most popularly associated with the movements/protests in Cal Berkeley in which students struggled to fight against on-campus political existences and activities. In addition, the SDS or Students for a Democratic Society was so involved because they were acting in response to the issues of their time alike to student rights and how the campus was impeding on their civil liberties as students.
