UC Davis, UC Santa Barbara and UC Berkeley “Day of Action”

In April 1985, during a “day of action” at University of California at Davis, Santa Barbara and Berkeley, more than 300 people were arrested across the campuses while participating in the boycott of American support of South Africa’s apartheid laws. The students called for UC to divest $1.7 billion in American companies tied to South Africa.(Photo: David McNew/Getty Images)
