At Berkeley during the 1964-65 school year, Mario Savio and his fellow students led the fight to lift a ban of on-campus political activities, a struggle that blossomed into the Free Speech Movement. As Savio declared in his famous December 1964 speech- oThere's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part! You can't even passively take part! And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels . . . upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop!o

Commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the Free Speech Movement, Censored 2015 -Project Censored's annual yearbook of the top 25 most censored stories and media analysis as voted on by activists, scholars, and media workers across the country-continues where last year's volume left off- The US has left Iraq with an epidemic of cancers and birth defects. A fifth of Americans go hungry. The richest global 1 percent hide trillions in offshore tax havens. . . . And so much more that didn't make the front page (or even back page).

Informative and timely, appalling and sometimes uplifting, Censored alerts readers to the stories that were quashed in favor of media bias, celebrity scandals, and self-censorship, in hopes that we the people, armed with knowledge, put our bodies upon the gears-before it's too late.
