In June 1967, President Lyndon Johnson gave his last public
speech not on a military base at Century City in Los Angeles. The
speech was met with a massive protest demonstration, which in
turn was vigorously assaulted by the Los Angeles Police
Department. Quite a few people were injured.

Does anyone know of an easily-available source for details on
this demonstration? I ask because the Peace & Freedom Party began
the voter registration drive which gained us ballot status in
California at that demonstration. I'd like to use information on
the demonstration, its organizers and its consequences, as part
of our 30th-anniversary celebrations.

Thanks in advance.
