I try not to link to bird app much but this is an astounding and comprehensive thread there from @igd_news about the history of Peoples Park in Berkeley. I knew some of this - but not everything, like that in 1992, UC pigs shot and killed a young anarchist, Rosebud DeNovo, who broke into a chancellors residence.

@ombres @riotmuffin @igd_news

worth remembering that universities are large corporate land developers that happen to also confer degrees. they are often the largest landlords and owners in their areas, and the university of california system is collectively one of the largest in the entire state.

@riotmuffin glad you got a lot out of it! If you haven't already, also check out this episode on Chicano Park in San Diego.
