Title

The Web 1980 "Issues But No Answers"

Description

This page from The Web 1980 documents an "Iranian demonstration on the Richmond College Campus" to protest the Iran hostage crisis. According to the caption, this on-campus demonstration reflected the "rebellious spirit of the late '60s" as students gathered around a "campfire" and burned the Circle K newspaper supply as well as an effigy of Ayatollah Khomeini. During this burning, the sounds and rally chants of "God Bless America," "Ayatollah Assahola," "Hell No, We won't Go!" and "Nuke Them Till They Glow" could be heard. The caption states that the protestors were "fueled by plenty of Golden Beverage" and that the campus police could only control the mass of people as they were unsuccessful in dispersing the rally.
