beachsong Jan 13, 2021 07:41 PM Bank of America Burning 1970 My housemate was there. IT WAS NOT STUDENTS THAT STARTED THE FIRE. He eventually had to go trial as a witness and testify against the FBI. The FBI got the wrong person. The person who started the dumpster fire and crashed it through the front door was a homeless guy. Students were standing around like watching a volcano. They were yelling. 1 friend drove his bicycle through the burning bank (now a Beverly Hills attorney). Another friend stood on a desk in the burning bank. She said students pushed the dumpster back outside. Then others pushed it back inside when the roof caught on fire. The Bank of America was unpopular because it invested in South Africa apartheid. Kevin Moran should be commenorated. He was shot, killed after trying to put out one of the fires. See his picture back of UCSB '70 yearbook La Cumbre.
