See this film: Chicago 10 at BU's George Sherman Union

The surprisingly robust activism stirred up by Wisconsin's recent union-busting policies recall the glory days of the peace movement that probably peaked with the debacle of the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago. Those unfamiliar with the story might take a look at Brett Morgen's zesty, animated Chicago 10 (2008) about the subsequent show trial in which demonstration leaders Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Bobby Seale, and others were charged with conspiracy to incite a riot. Watch it and become an activist yourself: the Student Labor Action Project is screening it as a fundraiser for the IMF Resistance Network, an East coast-based anti-authoritarian group dedicated to organizing resistance to the International Monetary Fund and World Bank.
