He probably doesn't care about the prisoners or their plight. Still counselor and the other observers are going to have to find a way to get through to him because he could influence the governor and prevented disaster. The meeting begins. And one of the observers tells douglas that the governor must come to attica right away. The inmates have asked for governor rockefeller to visit them. Personally they believed. The governor might be sympathetic to their plight and whether or not this is true rockefellers. Mere presence might still be helpful if he appears it attica.

It will give the inmates confidence that rockefeller will protect them if they decide to surrender. Douglas nods again remaining silent. But for william counselor as he watches the governor's adviser it becomes clear that none of these suggestions have made a difference. But they can't give up so counselor decides to make an argument framed around. The governor's own self interest. An image counselor tells douglas that if the governor dozen come he'll be condoning a massacre and the whole country will be watching. Douglas gives a slight smirk finally speaks up. He tells the observers he hears them and he'll speak with the governor and he turns walked out of the room. For a moment the roomful of some thirty observers assignment consulate can see it in.

"Small town in southern vermont. Hermann schwarz lays his foot on the pedal the engine roaring is hands grow white from gripping the steering wheel schwartz is an attorney and he likes to think of himself as a law abiding citizen but tonight. There's too much at stake to follow the rules. Drive the speed limit earlier today. He stepped inside the attica correctional facility longside a state legislator and the head of new york state prisons together they met with. The inmates had overtaken attica and begun a tense standoff. That could turn bloody. According to one of the inmates leaders. The prisoners highest priority is to gain amnesty. They wanna make sure that they don't face any reprisal for their actions and they won't release the hostages until they get that assurance it was. They're standing in the prison yard. That schwartz grew convinced. He could help as an attorney. Schwartz knows that atika falls under the jurisdiction of federal judge named john curtin. If shorts could convince the judge to offer amnesty to the inmates he could deliver on their central demand. And help bring the standoff to a close so schwartz typed up a legal document detailing. The terms of the amnesty. All he needed was the judge's signature but when he called curtains office his secretary said the judge was on vacation in vermont. Schwartz didn't hesitate. He hung up and drove straight to the nearest airport. He hopped a midnight flight and now his rental car comes to a halt in front of the hotel with judge. Stay shorts jumped out of the car and dashes past the uniform ballet. He calls out the he'll be right-back schwartz. Stocks down a hallway and soon he finds judge curtains sweet and bangs on the door. There's no answer but it is the middle of the night. The judges probably asleep. So schwartz tries again finally. He hears footsteps padding over the door swings open cautiously standing in the doorways. The fifty year old judge is barely open. Then dumbfounded look on his face. The judge piers schwarzen- demands. Know what the hell he's doing here in the middle of the night. Schwartz begins to explain a judge curtain interruption. Says he'll deal with this tomorrow. And he shuts the door but schwartz stops it from closing with his hand. He says he sorry. But this can't wait. What might be the largest prison right in. American history just took place yesterday morning. There's a good chance. The inmates will face off against state troopers. If they don't surrender lives or hanging in the balance and their surrender hinges on the inmates receiving embassy. Schwartz holds up the document. He prepared tells curtain that all he needs is his signature. It'll help put an end to the whole ordeal. The judge size then grabs the document from schwartz. He retreats back to his room. And then a few minutes later returns with paper when schwartz seized the judge's signature at the bottom. He grins and starts thanking curtain over and over a curtain just rubs his eyes and groans and then slams the door shut. Schwartz is proud as an attorney spends his days fighting for prisoners rights. And this may go down as one of the highlights of his entire career. They can't dwell on it. There's more to do schwartz sprint. Out of the hotel jumped.

"It's a timber ninth. Nine hundred seventy one and late morning at the attica correctional facility in western new york out in the prison yard richard x clark carries a heavy bundle of canned food as he heads to a table. Clark sets down the food and wipes sweat from his forehead is arms are sore and tired but for clark good feeling as he looks around he struck by the transformation. That's taken hold this maximum security prison. Rival gang members are working side by sign carrying supplies to medical tent and inmate. Disinfects a wound on another inmates left cheek. The prison yard has turned into a sprawling encampment a democratic village. That's run by the prisoners themselves. It's an incredible turn of events for years. The inmates have been treated like animals. They were beaten mercilessly never given proper food or medical care but then just a few hours ago. The inmates erupted in revolt. They drove back the guards and after taking several dozen of them hostage. They took control of the prison. The prisoners then banded together and developed a list of changes. They want to see inadequate to reach these goals. The inmates elected a small group of representatives including richard clark. A leader of the prisons black muslim community as clark walked through the yard. He feels optimistic that the prison administrators will meet their demands. But clark knows that as basic as these demands may be. The upcoming negotiations are going to be tense. There's a high pitched noise and clark turns looking outside of the prison where a man stands in the navy blue suit holding a megaphone side by side with several policemen morning. My name is vincent mancusi on the superintendent of attica. I'm here to talk with you now. Whoever's in charge please come over. I want to figure out a way to get past. This clark looks at several other inmates. I'll talk with them. And if you wanna com. You're free to join the men not and wielding baseball bats and football helmets. They began making their way over to mancusi as they get closer to. The superintendent holds his hand. All right all right stop. That's far enough now. Who am i talking to morning mister. Mancusi you're talking to me. My name is richard clark. Okay mr clark would you please tell your men to lay down their weapons. Sorry sir. I can't do that. We have to protect ourselves. But i promise you know intends any harm okay. Mr kearney's have them stay there and you can step forward. I can do that. Mr clark mister mancusi as i said no one intense any harm clark. I believe you if you were operating good faith but look over there. Those are my prison guards. They bruises on their faces cut up. They're scare out of their minds. Don't tell me about your intentions telling what you want so we can put an end to this. Well start simple. We need decent food and sanitation. You have to provide medical staff who are competent. You have to replace the abuse of guards. Clark pauses staring at mancusi. Maybe you should be writing this down. Let's get one thing very clear. This is not a negotiation. I'm ordering you to let go of my guards. And why should we because until you let go of the hostages. I'm not gonna even consider your demands if you don't let them go. I'll make damn sure you wish you had before clark respond. His fellow inmates behind him lift their weapons and began moving towards mancusi grabs with bullhorn again stem mac. Step back policemen flanking mancusi reach for their rifles. Now gentlemen hold on now. Let's not do anything stupid. Mr mancusi we appreciate you coming down here. We're committed to releasing the hostages. Only after we discuss our demands with someone higher up. Ira who do you want on president nixon. nixon would be good or we'll settle for the head of the state prisons or the governor. You out of your mind sir. If you watch your prison back you need to send someone with real authority. Someone who can make changes now. If you'll excuse me need to make sure the hostages have been given a decent meet.

He tells the other guards that now all they can do is just wait for help to arrive. Immense stared each other their eyes wide with terror.

"It's september twelfth. Nineteen seventy-one in attica new york. Richard x clark walks across a massive concrete yard covered in mud. He stops a warm wind blowing through his hair standards at the site in front of him. Clark standing in a prison yard at the attica correctional facility normally this area is under tight supervision with armed guards standing watch controlling movements of every prisoner but everything changed three days ago. When the inmates decided they'd had enough they were tired of the abuse of the guards violence and mistreatment so the inmates rose up and together. They took control of the prison as clark looks out of the yard. He still can't believe what he saying. Hundreds of inmates move around like free men. A group of hostages huddled together on an old mattress with prisoners standing guard. The yard has been turned into a sprawling and can't meant it's a democratic society. That's run by the prisoners themselves and led by a small group of leaders including richard. X clark is only twenty five years old. He's slender and whereas black framed glasses even though his young he knows that he and the other inmates have made history now that they control annika they can demand significant changes improve the lives of prisoners. But it's even bigger than that clark knows. They can change prisons across the country. Maybe even the rest of the world still as he looks around. The yard clark concede that the feelings of triumph and revolution are already fading. It's day three of the standoff. And the inmates look exhausted and on the brink of making a rash decision. It's a situation that could only grow worse with some news that has just arrived. Clark approaches an inmate named frank smith towering man who was appointed head of security frank. We've got a problem. Yeah no kidding. We got a problem. It's been three days. We're not getting anywhere. We got the prison but we also got state police surrounding us. I know but listen. There's something else you need to see. Clark takes out a message. He received from a government official. The man who runs the prisons in new york state from russell oswal demand to surrender. Richardson saying that. From the start and frank this time. Something's different he's not asking anymore. This is this is the threat. Tell everyone they gotta know far people here this. They're just going to dig in their heels. I don't think they need to know that it's come to ultimatum. Sure about that. I think so. I think it's the only option if it were the only option. You wouldn't be talking me right now trying to figure things out. So here's what. I think we took over. We made a promise. We make decisions together. All the inmates together so whatever's on that piece of paper got read it out loud and let them decide clark. Exhales shuts his eyes. The two men make their way across the arm to a set of scuffed. Wooden tables clark grabs a microphone wired up to a speaker at the sound of his voice. Hundreds of prisoners suddenly look up. Clark raises the document in the air and announces that he just received a message from oswal the head of prisons. The commissioner demands that they end the rebellion and that they released the guards. They're holding hostage. Oswald says they need to do so immediately then and only then will he meet with the inmates to discuss their grievances and possibly changes to the prison. Clark sets down the note and looks at the man in the audience. Prisoners who for years have suffered torture at the hands of guards grievous medical treatment and unspeakable nightmare day after day all of which has pushed them to the spring. Clark looks over the crowd he asked. Who's in support of accepting the proposal letting the hostages go yard silent then clark asks. Who's against the proposal and all at once.

"Sir. This is democracy. Now democracy now or the warrant piece report. I'm Amy Goodman with one gun solace with part two of today's edition of fifty years ago that right fifty years ago this week, the nineteen sixty eight democratic national convention in Chicago became a national spectacle as a major political event turned into chaos that culminated with a police riot, much of it unfolding on live national television. While Hubert Humphrey was nominated as the democratic candidate in nineteen sixty eight inside despite the fact he didn't run in any primaries outside was where the news was where police were clubbing teargassing thousands of protesters. For more. We continue our interviews with Bobby Seale founding chairman, Black Panther party was in the protests at the beginning in Chicago. Bill Ayers was arrested on August twenty seven fifty years ago and Bernardine Dohrn both Bernardine and Bill longtime activists for peace and racial Justice, former SDS that students for a democratic society and whether underground members. I mean, he Goodman with Juan Gonzalez one? Yes. Yes. With Bobby Seale again to follow up a Bobby on the conversation. We were having that the end of our previous segment when you were talking about how once Richard Nixon was elected president, he ordered. His aides to begin immediate eradication of the Black Panther party. One of the interesting things that most people are not aware of is that years later report came out in the New York Times that the f. b. i. had conducted a CPR secret poll among black Americans and found that more than twenty five percent of African Americans were supporters of the Black Panther party felt that the Black Panther party was fighting. Their interest is significant portion of the America of the African American population of this country was supportive of of your revolutionary organization. And yet as you were saying Nixon immediately ordered that you be crushed, could you talk about what happened in that first few years of the Nixon administration to the panther party. Exactly the year of nineteen sixty nine is the year. Now, remember I said he had a meeting with j. Edgar Hoover and Jade ago who were in the December the first week of December stated nationally on television that we were threat to the internal, the blackout, the party is a threat to the internal security of America. Come come. What was February seventeenth seventeenth. John a buddy Carter and John Huggins will murdered at UCLA. They were the leaders of the black path to party and loss Angeles California now. But she Carter really had gotten out of his gang group. 'cause he, he ran a three thousand member gang and he created a political organization call wretched of the earth delay to become and he later became rub. They headed up to southern California chapter the black part in the Los Angeles community. Eric, the what I'm trying to say here is that. That was the first attack on the part of the power structure using the us organization, etcetera. In a conflict situation to kill and murder. The leaders of the Los Angeles chapter, the blackout, the party do that process in the next three or four months. They attack more than twenty two offices I'm talking about in Indiana. I'm talking about the, they blew up the office and demands. I will literally got the crew Clinton of blew up that blow up that building. And I'm telling you. In San Diego brother. Bell was opening up to San Diego office at eight AM in the morning, and the police and FBI came jumped out of cars and came into place and shot him dead killing murdering. So I'm just says that period of tacking by the end of that year with the murder of Fred Hampton and then the shootout in Los Angeles, four days later after that cetera I have in my organization, I had twenty eight dead blackout to party members sixty nine wounded and defending ourselves. We defended ourselves and many of these attacks. By the end of that year, fourteen police were kill because we shot back when they came in shooting in us. We did not play. We shot back

"Sir. This is democracy. Now democracy now or the warrant piece report. I'm Amy Goodman with one gun solace with part two of today's edition of fifty years ago that right fifty years ago this week, the nineteen sixty eight democratic national convention in Chicago became a national spectacle as a major political event turned into chaos that culminated with a police riot, much of it unfolding on live national television. While Hubert Humphrey was nominated as the democratic candidate in nineteen sixty eight inside despite the fact he didn't run in any primaries outside was where the news was where police were clubbing teargassing thousands of protesters. For more. We continue our interviews with Bobby Seale founding chairman, Black Panther party was in the protests at the beginning in Chicago. Bill Ayers was arrested on August twenty seven fifty years ago and Bernardine Dohrn both Bernardine and Bill longtime activists for peace and racial Justice, former SDS that students for a democratic society and whether underground members. I mean, he Goodman with Juan Gonzalez one? Yes. Yes. With Bobby Seale again to follow up a Bobby on the conversation. We were having that the end of our previous segment when you were talking about how once Richard Nixon was elected president, he ordered. His aides to begin immediate eradication of the Black Panther party. One of the interesting things that most people are not aware of is that years later report came out in the New York Times that the f. b. i. had conducted a CPR secret poll among black Americans and found that more than twenty five percent of African Americans were supporters of the Black Panther party felt that the Black Panther party was fighting. Their interest is significant portion of the America of the African American population of this country was supportive of of your revolutionary organization. And yet as you were saying Nixon immediately ordered that you be crushed, could you talk about what happened in that first few years of the Nixon administration to the panther party. Exactly the year of nineteen sixty nine is the year. Now, remember I said he had a meeting with j. Edgar Hoover and Jade ago who were in the December the first week of December stated nationally on television that we were threat to the internal, the blackout, the party is a threat to the internal security of America. Come come. What was February seventeenth seventeenth. John a buddy Carter and John Huggins will murdered at UCLA. They were the leaders of the black path to party and loss Angeles California now. But she Carter really had gotten out of his gang group. 'cause he, he ran a three thousand member gang and he created a political organization call wretched of the earth delay to become and he later became rub. They headed up to southern California chapter the black part in the Los Angeles community. Eric, the what I'm trying to say here is that. That was the first attack on the part of the power structure using the us organization, etcetera. In a conflict situation to kill and murder. The leaders of the Los Angeles chapter, the blackout, the party do that process in the next three or four months. They attack more than twenty two offices I'm talking about in Indiana. I'm talking about the, they blew up the office and demands. I will literally got the crew Clinton of blew up that blow up that building. And I'm telling you. In San Diego brother. Bell was opening up to San Diego office at eight AM in the morning, and the police and FBI came jumped out of cars and came into place and shot him dead killing murdering. So I'm just says that period of tacking by the end of that year with the murder of Fred Hampton and then the shootout in Los Angeles, four days later after that cetera I have in my organization, I had twenty eight dead blackout to party members sixty nine wounded and defending ourselves. We defended ourselves and many of these attacks. By the end of that year, fourteen police were kill because we shot back when they came in shooting in us. We did not play. We shot back
