Welcome to FSM-A

We offer: a spectrum of opinions on what FSM was, information about Mario Savio, perspectives on what happened in the FSM.  There's an extensive suite of documents of the conflict, from all sides.

The FSM didn't happen in isolation. Here's information on the rich history that led to the FSM and the complex developments that followed from it. We plan to show how the FSM has been treated as "history".

Who was involved and what became of them? Read about public commemorations organized by FSM veterans and reports on projects to memorialize the FSM.
