The Trial of the Chicago 7

Another chapter in the history books, this time highlighting injustice in an American courtroom. Let’s face it, it was a media circus, and the participants knew they were on trial for who they were, not what they’d done.

Each generation thinks that their grievances against the government, whether it be about war, poverty and/or racial discrimination are new, but nothing could be further from the truth. Even then, Black Lives Matter-ed, as the mistreatment of Bobby Seale showed. But that decade (the 1960’s) was very upsetting to the status quo, and nothing more so than the Vietnam War protests, especially in the States. For the first time, young people were demanding that the war should end, that the U.S. should withdraw from Southeast Asia, and that all Americans should be brought safely home.
