Bernie arrested protesting

In the early 1960s, Senator Bernard Sanders was a civil rights protestor. This page contains a video which the Sanders campaign has verified is indeed footage of Sanders being arrested. At the time he was a student at U.Chicago. Young Sanders paid a fine of $25.

This page shows more photos of the parent-organized protest – which led to an October Chicago Schools walkout by 200,000+ students.
