Description: Three girls in sheer black bras and short red skirts cheer on soccer players by kicking and raising their arms. A crowd can be seen behind them watching. The girls are the focus of the photo. Photo caption reads: High kicking pom pom girls in black bras and red skirts led cheers for 75 political soccer game players who are supporters of the People's Park. The contest, dubber "hippie creeps versus the pigs," with hippies masquerading as sheriff's deputies, was meant to dramatize the fact that "the People's Park has been made into a political football," said one pseudo deputy.
