A rallying cry of Students for a Democratic Society, the 1960s “New Left” student activists. The SDS called for social and economic justice, participatory democracy, an end to the draft and a withdrawal of U.S. troops from Vietnam. They organized teach-ins, sit-ins and demonstrations, including a march on Washington on April 17, 1965, which drew an estimated 25,000 anti-war protestors.

    I was in school when the SDS advocating setting trash cans afire in school to draw attention to student unrest---what a bunch of goofballs!
