It's the same story,
for 300 years; if you're so clever,
why didn't you join us
from the beginning?
Now, our only choice is to
tell them "we're sorry"
the university is closed, on strike.
We'll blow a whistle when it's over.
What about boycotting
military recruitment at the university?
There's only one thing to do:
go to the recruitment offices,
take a bottle, fill it with petrol,
but what if we want to blow
up sociology instead?
Listen, a molotov is a
mix of petrol and kerosene,
is a mix of chat and shit.
Listen, I'm not here to show you
my revolutionary credentials,
fighting on the street,
just as you in the ghetto.
who are potential revolutionaries.
Here we go again with the same discussion, guys.
When they put you in jail
because of a bit of marjuana,
you become revolutionary.
But when they smash your face,
break your head,
prevent you from living, going to school,
from getting a job,
then you must become revolutionary.
That's why you people say we
negroes are living in another...
Wait a moment. You're talking to white
students. I think we understand.
Yes, a lot of us understand what
makes negroes revolutionary,
makes negroes revolutionary.
But it doesn't happen the same way.
It'll happen, don't worry.
You won't need to do anything to make it happen.
You can prevent it, sure.
You can break it off.
You can do everything, but you can't...
- For example?
can't you see?
I mean, now we have police at
the university, and then? Where next?
Sitting with us in class?
Inside our homes? And then?
On the street, when you go out?
Are you waiting for that to become
What I mean is that we should
close the univeristy, that's it,
if they do,
it'll be at their risk.
And when they decide to reopen,
they'll do it on our conditions.
But why stop people from
going to class? Why...
Because they're against us.
We've tried everything: begged,
negotiated, written programs,
but we haven't gotten a damn.
I think, and I'm not alone,
point of every guerrilla
and they don't know how and where.
People who act to draw attention
do it on purpose
to divert it from others
If you want to close the university,
what do you want to...
- Hey listen to me!
- We need mass demonstrations.
- Just a moment!
The side of the black students
doesn't want to give a show.
Speaking of what you say,
I don't agree, you know,
It doesn't matter so much.
Because if tomorrow our agitation
demonstrator or not, black or white,
will be considered an enemy,
and it'll be easier to keep this tension
Well then I share your opinion.
There is no more coffee.
Can you make some more?
Isn't there any man who can make coffee?
some groups of 4 or 5,
that should stay out of the university
and that, at some given moment,
should move behind the police.
