Must-watch: 47 years after Mario Savio's speech

 This is not just another video.  Watch this incredible segment on the Rachel Maddow show.  It starts with some little-seen clips of Mario Savio, a leader of the Berkelely free speech movement, giving his famous "put your bodies upon the gears" address in December 1964 and gives some historical context of how movements strengthen when the 1% overreacts and suppresses free speech.
