Originally part of an article, this image from La Vida Newspaper speaks on the demonstration staged by students at Roosevelt High School in 1969.[1] The school asked the Los Angeles police department to respond to the situation. A tactical squad was sent to remove the demonstrating youth from the high school. La Vida Nueva documented the violent beating students received that day.
