A precious film document, produced by The American Civil Liberties Union in conjunction with the National Mobilization To End The War In Vietnam, detailing the events and issues involved in the violent Chicago Police crackdown on peaceful anti-war demonstrators during the 1968 Democratic National Convention. Created when memories and wounds were fresh, it provides thorough coverage of the subject plus inteviews with demonstration participants Rennie Davis, Allen Ginsburg, Jay Miller, Dick Gregory, Anna Kerr and more.

COLUMBIA REVOLT (1969, 49:05)
In April 1968, the Board of Trustees of Columbia University decided to build a gymnasium on land where the Morningside Community Park stood. While members of this low income minority community rose in fierce opposition to the plan, the students of the university likewise organized to prevent the building's construction. On April 23rd, the Students for a Democratic Society lead a demonstration in opposition to the planned construction, the defense establishment connections of the administration and the disciplinary action they had taken against six student activists. What began as a demonstration quickly became an occupation by the students of campus facilities, setting off a chain of events that ultimately resulted in a two month long, violent siege. This 1969 film documents the events as they happened from the perspective of the students, from the early stages of the administration's plans to the unofficial second commencement ceremony attended by most of the students (and much of the faculty) of the class of 1968.

Opposition To United States Involvement In The Vietnam War began with demonstrations in 1964 against the escalating role of the United States in the Vietnam War and grew into a broad social movement over the ensuing several years. This movement informed and helped shape the vigorous and polarizing debate, primarily in the United States, during the second half of the 1960s and early 1970s on how to end the war. Many in the peace movement within the United States were students, mothers, or anti-establishment hippies. Opposition grew with participation by the African-American civil rights, second-wave feminist movements, Chicano Movements, and sectors of organized labor. Additional involvement came from many other groups, including educators, clergy, academics, journalists, lawyers, physicians-such as Benjamin Spock-and military veterans. Their actions consisted mainly of peaceful, nonviolent events; few events were deliberately provocative and violent. In some cases, police used violent tactics against peaceful demonstrators. By 1967, according to Gallup polls, an increasing majority of Americans considered military involvement in Vietnam to be a mistake, echoed decades later by the then-head of American war planning, former Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara.
