The Chicago 8 not 7
This is one of those films that should be shown regularly; perhaps once every 2 weeks, for although these injustices occurred in 1968 in The Chicago 8 Trial, these same injustices take place every hour of the day here in the land of the supposed free. Obviously the cast was committed to the re-enactment of the truth about the U.S.judicial system, a system that locks freedom away and gags it into silence. With the real players from the actual trial close at hand for direction, the authenticity is underscored. Should the reader of this text be seeking a gift to give to our future - the children - give them this and teach them well. Teachers, buck the system and show this film in your classes with pride, for you are the educator, not the servant. Peace Free Leonard Pelitier (:
