Fixed links to disambiguation pages[edit]

I have fixed a link to a disambiguation page on this template for WikiProject Disambiguation. I changed the link Free festival to Free party since that seemed to be the most relevant link on the disambiguation page, and the only article that really seemed to be on the subject. If you disagree with my decision then feel free to change it to link to an article that you think is more appropriate. - EdoDodo talk 18:13, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

Hippies and violent protests, about including a link to Long hot summer of 1967 on this template[edit]

Hippies clearly were part of protests that got violent. Many ended up in jail also for non-violent resistance tactics which also get you to jail. After 1967 the US state forces got more violent againts anti-war and other types of protests. A major example was 1968 Democratic National Convention protest activity. 1968 was a worldwide year of major protests which got violent from both sides and even if you were strictly non violent protester you would still get tear gas and sometimes water sprayed or beaten up by the police. Hippies didn´t just hang around parks and smoked weed.--Eduen (talk) 15:24, 3 July 2017 (UTC)

This section, originally addressed to me personally (?), was because I twice reverted Eduen's good faith recent edit adding Long hot summer of 1967 to the Related section of this template (which Eduen created, and thanks, nice work!). Please read the "long hot summer" page and its links, as I just did. Each one is an encyclopedic article about violence and people venting their anger by killing, injuring, and breaking other people's property. The page is about the summer riots of 1967, not about the 1968 police riot in Chicago, or about 1968 being a year of nonviolent protests. The page is specific and focuses, by title and topic, on the summer of 1967. Hippies, who were engaged in the Summer of Love during the same summer (please read this page) and advocating for love, nonviolence, and peace, did not participate in these destructive riots. Are there sources that they did? The topics are not related. Randy Kryn (talk) 16:30, 3 July 2017 (UTC)
Not related, for such obvious reasons that I'm surpised it's even been suggested. Like putting a Gandhi or Dr MLK template on it. Thank Goodness there are still a few of us around who can try to defend what we stood for and dismiss what we did not. --SergeWoodzing (talk) 22:17, 3 July 2017 (UTC)
