In 1969, about 100 demonstrators, angry about weapons development at the Stanford Research Institute, marched around the SRI campus in Menlo Park. Many of the protesters, which included a number of Stanford students, were arrested, but it was just the beginning of a fight that peaked in 1971 when members of the Venceramos organization turned out in force at a Menlo Park City Council meeting.
