"We created a garden out of a swamp... Then 500 pigs, heavily armed, were called in to keep the people out." Calls for a festival of life on Memorial Day weekend and for the demolition of the fence around the park. People's Park was a plot of land owned by the University of California which was seized by UC Berkeley students and Berkeley citizens as a park in April 1969. On May 15, 1969, local and state police attempted to fence off the park and destroyed the plantings and other improvements.
