Protestors and supporters turned out in the Tower District where 60's anti-war protestor William Ayers spoke Thursday night.

Back in the 70's, Ayers reportedly bombed the Capitol, the Pentagon and other buildings.Now a college professor, Ayers came to Fresno to speak at a Fresno Church in the Tower District.

The controversial political activist spoke to a crowd of more than a hundred people at the First Congregation Church on Van Ness. They came to hear about his role as an anti-war protestor in the 60’s as part of the weather underground.

William Ayers said, “I am no more a person of the 60’s than I am a person of the 40’s or a person of today. We were not terrorist organization and that is because we never threatened to kill people, we never killed people -- we did destroy property and answered for those things.”

The Weather Underground was linked to the bombings of government buildings in the 60’s. Because of that, his talk in Fresno was moved from a state office building downtown to the church.
