    SPEAKER: SEQ 6: WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU ARE THOSE PHOTOGRAPHS THAT ALL YOU PEOPLE TOOK, SO THAT WHEN WE SPEAK TO THE WITNESSES THEY CAN IDENTIFY PEOPLE. NO-ONE WAS WEARING BADGES. THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE TO IDENTIFY PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE POLICEMEN, IF WE WANT TO KNOW WHO DID WHAT.



    GLAZIER: SEQ 10: WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO SEE IS THAT THERE IS A BROAD-BASED REACTION AGAINST THAT ADMINISTRATION DECISION. BECAUSE THIS CAMPUS IS OUTRAGED RIGHT NOW. WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO SEE IS THAT OUTRAGE ISN'T NECESSARILY TRANSLATED INTO THE S.D.S. POLITICAL DEMANDS. THIS ISN'T A GROUP IN OPPOSITION TO S.D.S., IT'S A GROUP COMPLEMENTARY TO S.D.S. THEY ARE SIMPLY MANY THINGS THAT THEY ARE ADVOCATING THAT WE DO NOT SUPPORT, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, WE'RE UNIFIED IN OUR BELIEF THAT WHAT THE ADMINISTRATION DID WAS ABSOLUTELY INDEFENSIBLE, THE WAY THEY DID IT WAS ABSOLUTELY INDEFENSIBLE, AND THERE ARE A NUMBER OF THINGS CONCERNING THE STRUCTURE OF THIS UNIVERSITY, THE STRUCTURE OF THE DECISION-MAKING PROCESS, THAT WE ARE ALL OUT OF CHANGE, AND WE ARE GOING TO.

    Background: NEARLY HALF THE 15,000 STUDENTS AT HARVARD UNIVERSITY, IN CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTES, IGNORED PICKET LINES TO ATTEND CLASSES AT THE START OF A THREE-DAY STRIKE CALLED YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) IN PROTEST AGAINST POLICE ACTION IN AN EARLIER CLASH WITH STUDENTS. MANY OF THE STUDENTS STATED THEY COULD NOT AFFORD THE TIME AWAY FROM STUDIES BECAUSE OF IMPENDING EXAMINATIONS.

    ON THURSDAY, RIOT POLICE WERE CALLED IN TO EJECT ABOUT 200 STUDENT WHO TOOK OVER THE HISTORIC UNIVERSITY HALL. AT LEAST 49 PEOPLE, INCLUDING EIGHT POLICE, WERE INJURED IN THE CLASH AND ABOUT 185 PEOPLE ARRESTED BY THE BATON-WIELDING POLICE.

    THE STRIKE PICKETS WERE LED BY MEMBERS OF THE RADICAL STUDENTS FOR A DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY (S.D.S.) ORGANISATION.

    A RALLY OF MODERATE STUDENTS HELD IN THE UNIVERSITY CAMPUS WAS ADDRESSED BY ONE OF THE LEADERS.

    LATER A MODERATE-STUDENT LEADER, MR. KEN GLAZIER, SPOKE OF THE AIMS OF THE STUDENTS.
