Sketch of my mom on trial in 1969

Trial in 1969 for a demonstration in May at the Stanford Industrial Park, which my mom and others had shut down - biggest traffic jam in Santa Clara County history they called it. They called it shutting down the war machine. My mom was charged with 5 misdemeanors and convicted of 4 as I recall - failure to disperse, rioting, inciting to riot and one more like that. She served one month at the San Jose Women's correctional facility as a result of this trial.
