Since the Vietnam war, Santa Cruz has experienced a long history of anti-war protests both organized and conducted here. More recently, anti-war protests have become regular events since the World Trade Center towers came down in 2001, and have been held at Lockheed Martin, the Town Clock, on Ocean Street, and at the Army's recruitment center in Capitola.

Every year, anti-war protesters line Ocean Street to greet the flood of tourists coming into town on Independence Day.
