    The continuation of government witch hunts eventually resulted in a sit-in at the 1960 HUAC hearings in San Francisco which was largely organized on the Cal campus. This was one of the major factors leading to the University's decision to prohibit political activity on campus, which, in turn, led to FSM, generally recognized as pretty much the start of the student movement of the sixties.  Thanks Joe. ;-)
