This is a version of a public talk by Professor Paola Bacchetta of the Department of Gender and Women’s Studies at UC Berkeley, which she read at a rally that commemorated the fiftieth anniversary of the Third World Strike on the same campus. The rally was part of a series of related events and it took place on the steps of Sproul Hall at UC Berkeley on January 22, 2019. The rally speakers and participants included elders from the Third World Liberation Front (TWLF) movement, current students and professors, and community members. The purpose of the rally was to bring people together to remember and honor the struggle of the TWLF and to inspire links between the past and present struggles.
