Ideology in The 1960s Looking at the Past Through the Lens of Ideology From Berkeley to New York: The Beginning and the End of the Movement On 1 October 1964, thousands of students at the University of California at Berkeley spontaneously surrounded a police car as it attempted to carry away a young political activist in handcuffs. The university and student political associations had been arguing for weeks over where student political organizing could take place. When the university declared that it must occur off campus, student organizations from across the political spectrum defied the decision by placing their tables in Sproul Plaza, one of the main thoroughfares through campus.
