"Banned the defense from presenting that testimony in the courtroom and for presenting that witness in the courtroom and didn't even allow the jury to know that they former attorney general Had been scheduled witness was not allowed to appear. And of course the most fundamental thing which we've mentioned before was refusing to allow bobby seale to have his attorney present and then refusing. His repeated demands that he be allowed to represent himself completely unconstitutional. The chicago seven trial. And we'll hear. The film is a little misleading. The film has a happy ending with tom. Hayden defying the judge. Well everybody cheers That's the way. Aaron sorkin likes films to end. But in real life the trial ended with guilty. Verdicts against five of the seven defendants. The everyone was found innocent on the conspiracy charge but guilty of incitement to riot. They were then sentenced to five years in prison for that crime and then the judge also gave each one of them long sentences for contempt of court some as long as four years more for contempt of court. Now normally if you're being facing more than a six month sentence for contempt of court you get a separate jury trial. He denied them a separate jury. Trial despite repeated protests from the attorneys and that also was overturned on appeal but the end of the trial was very grim and miserable experience for everybody what parallels do you see between the chicago seven and the protests of today and how the police have handled those protests world. Today's the biggest differences the today's protests have been a hundred times. Bigger wasn't just in one city. Did people took to the streets and in many places where attacked by the police. It was everywhere in america. Big cities and little cities and it wasn't just young people. It wasn't just black people. It was a very multiethnic multiracial Wave of protests that we had this summer on a scale that we've never seen before in america. So i think what happened. This summer is much much better much. Bigger and stronger and smarter than anything that happened in the sixties including the chicago convention protests. One of the most important thing is there weren't these kinds of splits in the demonstrations of the past summer. they were very focused and very coherent..

"We're talking about the 19 sixties, when protests over the Vietnam War and other grievances sent demonstrators into the streets, including at the 1968 Democratic convention in Chicago, where a law enforcement crackdown left hundreds of people hurt and hundreds more arrested. Months later, under a new administration, led by Richard Nixon grand jury indicted a group of protest leaders with conspiracy to incite a riot there infamous months long trial became a cultural landmark. And now it's the subject of a new movie. Written and directed by Aaron Sorkin. It's called the Trial of the Chicago Seven, but they were actually eight people on trial. Initially, the eighth defendant was Bobby Seale, co founder of the Black Panther Party. We spoke with Yaya Abdul Mateen, the second who plays seal in the film. He told us he knew about seal from growing up in Oakland, California, where the Black Panthers began but that it was only after he was offered the role that he really began to appreciate Seals character. It began to take on more meaning for me once When I looked up interviews of Bobby Seale. And I really learned Or start to get an idea for the dignity that this man had and about how he was robbed of his dignity during that trial, and I want it. I want to do two things with this role once of represent for Oakland, and I wanted to advocate for Bobby Seale and for his experience the experience that he had in this trial, and I knew that if I could step into those shoes and if I could go through that humiliation That brutalization as Bobby Seale will call it And if I if I could go through that and portray a victory, as opposed to a defeat that I felt like I would be doing a good job. Let me amplifies some of the things that you're talking about here. I want to point out that several of the people who were put on trial together didn't even know each other. And Bobby Seale was the only black defendant on the trial in Chicago. And the film points out something that a lot of people at the time also believe, which is that he was lumped in with the other activists. Kind of a dog whistle to the jury. But the film also points out that the judge demonstrated a sort of a blatant discussed and bias against the defendants. But Bobby still got the worst of it. He refused to delay the trial, even though seals lawyer had just had emergency gall bladder surgery and couldn't be present. And every time seal, try to bring this up. The judge Julius Hoffman would shoot him down and I just want to play a short clip. Here's Ah, this is you. Obviously. Then there's Julius Hoffman, who's played by Franklin Gellar. With the defense like to cross examine the witness. Yes, I'm sitting here saying that I would like to cross examine the witness lawyers can address lawyer Is Charles Gary. I'm tired of hearing that couldn't care less with time off. What did you say? I said it would be impossible for me to care less what you are tired of, and I demand to cross examine the witness chair and be quiet and don't ever address this court in that manner again. You know, Obviously, the movie version of these events is dramatized. But the basic facts, especially about seals, treatment are actually worse. I mean, at one point, the judge who's fed up with seals, attempts to ask for a fair trial, in fact, his own lawyer to be there, which is his right? Had him bound and gagged in the courtroom and in the film. This leads to an immediate mistrial and seals case specifically, But in reality, he was actually left bound and gagged for three days, and I wanted to ask how you thought about that, like how to Jews. How did you think about how to Present seal and all the complexity of what he was dealing with at that time Will Bobby Seale I think the best piece of piece of information that I got from a researching him was Ah quote. You know when when he was in prison during this case, and He says. When you're a revolutionary, they can't break your spirit, you know, And he also knew that Whatever they threw at him would be the worst thing that they could imagine. So he talks about having the type of psychology where you understand your oppressor to the degree that that whatever they throw at you You have to understand that they're only doing the things that that they're afraid to have done to them. So that when you persevere through that, it makes them afraid and they stand back in amazement at how you're able to withstand something that they could never be able to put themselves through. So I tried to really on myself with the idea that as a black man A zoo representative of myself, my people, my manhood, my dignity that I would protect those things at all cause and I wouldn't allow someone else to dehumanize me. You know, they made inflict pain on palm upon my body, but they won't be able to take my humanity And in fact, I think it could also potentially be argued that Bobby Seale Go to the judge. Into silencing him in that in that violent way, you know, and that that was a powerful move by Bobby Seale by outsmarting the judge by outsmarting his oppressive and he did it by speaking out in court by being disrupted by demanding justice by the man of the rights that are afforded to him through.

'The West Wing' enlists big names for its When We All Vote reunion special

"Thanks. I'm a big fan of Aaron Sorkin and tell us why This is a good time for me in television, because I like him so much. He absolutely if you didn't watch it yesterday, a cz, always with streaming. You can watch it at your leisure. But yesterday they dropped on HBO, Max. Ah, Special reunion of the West Wing cast is probably his most legendary TV show The West Wing and gathered almost everybody from the cast for Martin Sheen and Allison Janney and Rob Lowe and so forth. To recreate an episode from one of the early seasons as a theatrical staged event in an empty theater, But they filmed it like it was a play and it was in that shifted from scene to scene and it was really cleverly done, but also just reminded you how Wonderful that Siri's wass and how inspirational it was, even though it was about politics. So if the dueling if the dueling town halls and so you may be this would've last night, but it's still out there, but even more so today, Netflix drops another Aaron Sorkin project. Which he wrote and directed. It's called the Trial of the Chicago Seven, and it goes back to the sixties, when those counterculture figures Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin and Tom Hayden and Bobby Seale and others were put on trial for inciting the riots that disrupted the 1968 Democratic convention. It was a big media circus, and this film looks like it's got it all and including a terrific cast, including two Emmy winners from this season. Jeremy strong from succession and one of the stars of watchman job doing the team. They're playing two of the defendants. You also have frankly, Angela's The judge and Michael Keaton's in there. Sasha Baron Cohen's in there. Doing dramatic bit, and it just sounds like again. Aaron Sorkin is knows his way around a courtroom. If you remember his very first big hit was a few good men. So if you like Aaron Sorkin style you've got two choices was like a double whammy of Aaron Sorkin this week. Now? Yeah, I once interviewed Jerry Rubin, a za journalism student at Penn State, and he was in the Rolfing, which is when you beat yourself up physical. Just one strange cat, man. I got to say yes.

"A pass that seems like it's happening right now. Such is the case with the trial of the Chicago Seven people ready to make opening arguments. At the defense table. Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin, Dave Dellinger, Davis Lee Whiner John Frying, some hidden and Bobby Seale. These defendants had a plan, and the plan was to incite a riot. Washington Post film critic Ann Hornaday joining W. T O peace, Dimitry and Hillary to talk about the film's relevance. Oh, my goodness, I think it will resonate very strongly. This is regarding the 1968 Democratic National Convention and the riots that ensued when demonstrators from all manner of walks of life and activism descended on Chicago to protest the nomination of Hubert Humphrey. And when Nixon won the election, his attorney general John Mitchell, decided to sort of make an example of these These long haired anarchists and brought actually eight defendants up for trial. One of them, Bobby Seale was separated from that trial eventually, anyway, the filmmaker Aaron Sorkin, you, Khun tell already this is a complicated story. There are lots and lots of characters and lots and lots of issues to untangle and Writer director Aaron Sorkin just does a masterful job of threading viewers through all of that, in the form of a very compelling courtroom drama with just the right number of flashbacks and sort of interstitial. Segments to kind of flesh out the drama. But mostly, this is a triumph of casting. You just heard Franklin Djula, who plays Julius Hoffman, who was the judge in the case, who was just a larger than life character in Disastrous proportions. He's just fantastic In this film, Sasha Baron Cohen plays Abbie Hoffman, Eddie Redmayne. Very impressive is Tom Hayden. I could go on and on. It's just a really entered. Yes, it's educational, but most important in terms of being just a movie. It's very entertaining. You know, Some of us don't want to admit our gaps in our knowledge. And but I have no idea that Sherlock Holmes had a sister Lola in Ola homes. And this this one might be very appealing to stranger things, fans. Oh, and even more stranger things fans, Dmitri. Well, why couldn't he have a sister? Right? This's this's adapted from a very popular young adult novel, Siri's and its star was Millie Bobby Brown as Enola Holmes. Sherlock Little Sister and she's out to solve the disappearance of her mother played here by Helena Bonham Carter. This takes place in 19th Century England, Henry Cavil and Sam Claflin Place Sherlock and Mycroft in this really Enter appealing, brisk, funny Fleet little movie. It's I was utterly charmed. This is a Netflix movies so you can see it on Netflix rather than theaters. But for people just looking for a little bit of escapism and some some cracking good fund. This is a terrific choice. And that is Washington Post film critic Ann Hornaday. She joins us via Skype. He sees highest court making a ruling opening the door from or law school grads to practice in D. C. The D. C. Court appeals approves an emergency waiver related to the pandemic, known as diploma privilege for grads to be licensed in practice law without taking the bar exam.

It's leaving out people who We'll have a hard time getting a supervisor to sign off on every single document that they have to produce.

Over the past few weeks we have been experiencing another freedom summer. Minnesota are saying to people in New York two people in California to people in Memphis to people all across this nation enough is enough cell phone videos and social media are once again providing glaring spotlight on the inequities and injustice that are woven into the fabric of American society. In this special season of the browns to politics, we are diving into the past in how is impacting our present and future. For protests to political campaigns and youth involvement change is in the air and the fight for liberation continues. We'll be hearing from some of the Black Women at the forefront at today's movement who are fighting for change in making history to ensure that we have justice for all. Her name was even floated as a potential. VP. Pick for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's. It is no surprise that would ever congress is debating issues of equity and justice. Congress will lease voice is one of the strongest and most prominent today we talk about her work as a college student, a member of the Black Panther Party and what Congress is, do we to fight systems of oppression to reshape reimagined our political world?

I'm really excited to talk to you today and for our listeners, the congresswoman is such a legend and all of her work that she has done in. Congress over the years especially for Black Brown and indigenous communities by I have to ask you this question because it's something that I just wanted to talk to you about for so long is. You were a part of the Black Panthers. What was it like being? Black Panther I actually was not a member of the Black Panther Party I was what they call the community worker community workers had a lot of responsibilities as the Black Panther. Party. Members and remember the Black Panther Party began as a result of police Gupta brutality and the African American community. I mean. They stood down the police because things, police, murders, police Retali- as we know now were occurring then and they were the first organization that really took the police on, and so it was out of that that the Black Panther party formed, there's the Bible programs because it was not only an organization that address police brutality, but it was an organization that addresses chemic-. Racism and poverty. and. So what I did, and which was really phenomenal work and I was a single mother on public assistance with two little boys. I helped sell newspapers like math a newspaper on street corners I actually participated in the breakfast program for children who didn't have whose parents didn't have enough money to buy food and that's actually the breakfast programs from the federal government. Actually. Started as a result of the of the models that the Black Panther party you. I also really worked with you. He knew then did the research on his book Revolutionary Suicide. It was really phenomenal project I got to know Huey Newton Bobby Seale, Elaine Brown, Erica Huggins Joan Kelly, who just passed away and many of the leadership of the black. Panther party because community worker and student I was very involved in a lot of the work with party members. I actually brought Shirley Chisholm got involved in politics through the first presidential the first. Time. A black woman ran for president and that was sure children who was the first African American woman elected to Congress and so the Black Student Union president I invited her to come to milk college where I was attending and I got involved in her campaign by herb insisting that I register the vote and I had a class go because I didn't WanNa work in any of those campaigns. Well, bottom line is working her campaign and got the Black Panther party really involved in voter registration efforts. I. Was the one that went and asked Huey Noonan Bobby Seale to consider becoming politically active around early Chisholm campaign and they did. So I worked on all phases of the black. Panther. Party and all the different divisions I actually bag groceries. You know the panthers had a whole ten point program which again, the Free Breakfast program for the kids They started the Community Health Center Movement by instituting the George Jackson free medical clinic they did sickle cell tests. In fact, there was the Black Panther party that raises awareness about sickle cell disease as a as a disproportionate impact African Americans Fast Board Twenty Twenty people in the African American community and Black and Brown news still struggling disproportionately as it related to food security food desert healthcare disparities, unequal education. I. Helped. Start. Actually I wrote the first proposals for the Black Panther Party community learning center. They establish a Black Panther party school and so I was very instrumental in working on that project. So I did a lot of work with the Black Panther Party and I can just speak to how phenomenal they were and how necessary they were and how we should as we move forward. You know there's this Symbol in a gun and Andy. In government in Ghana called and Copeland. If the bird beautiful bird looking back holding an egg in her mouth and like in order to move forward in order to blackboard and you have to look back, we have to know our history we know where we've been and we have to build upon that so that we can move forward it. Now a wonderful young people in the Movement for Black, flags, or dreamers all the movements that are taking place are a continuation of what I see as the civil rights movement of of today, as well as what Black Panther Party actually started as it relates to stand down and and thing that that policing in our community. chain stop disproportionate killing black, and Brown people

There are few parts of California that have been hit hard by the corona virus pandemic than the Central Valley. The region is a major hub of food production, and a lot of Californians who live there aren't able to shelter in place. Governor Gavin Newsom yesterday raised concerns about how case numbers there. Keep growing politics reporter Katie or has details, Newsom says. Well, some parts of the state are seeing a stabilization or even declines in covert 19 numbers. The Central Valley is seen an increase in positivity rates, hospitalizations and I see you admissions disproportionately. This disease is impacting our diverse communities disproportionately impacting the Latino community disproportionately impacting the community in the Central Valley, California is overall Cove in 19 positivity rate is 7%. But several counties in the Central Valley, which has a large Latino population, are seeing much higher numbers. Including current county at more than 24% and that's why our targeted interventions disproportionately are focusing on essential workforce on farm workers on critical workforce and hospitality, retail sector and the like that is being impacted by this disease to help the region. California is using the model it first deployed in Imperial County. Following a massive cove in 19 outbreak there. It includes deploying state and federal personnel to help slowed the transmission of the disease through investigations and contact tracing, provide support to hospitals and help manage outbreaks. Newsome has announced $52 million to support those efforts in the Central Valley. For the California report. I'm Katie or in Sacramento. 50 years ago tomorrow, Huey P. Newton, co founder of the Black Panther Party for Liberation, walked out of the Alameda County courthouse where crowds waited to greet him. Newton had been convicted with murky evidence for his involvement in the shooting, where a police officer died. And the California Courts of Appeal reversed the decision. Pendarvis Harshaw is a reporter with the arts and host of the podcast right now wish and he's been reflecting on the significance of Newton's release. And why it matters. Today, 50 years after him being free from custody, I just looked at the footage of him outside the Alameda County courthouse and just thought about all the history that transpired right there on those grounds and even recently took a photo of The courthouse in shambles after a night of activism, and I just started the question of, you know the parallels or the contrast the comparison between what we're seeing right now in the fight for liberation, what happened 50 years ago? For people who aren't familiar with Huey P. Newton legacy Who was he? Creepy. Noone was co founder of the Black Panther Party for Liberation. He, along with Bobby Seale founded the party an effort to bring about some sort of social change, initially with the way that the black community was policed at the time, But that Immediately expanded into other social programs. Talk to me about what it took to get weepy Newton out of prison, the Free Huey movement and as it was known, the effort to get Huey Newton out of prison from understanding came on a number of different levels.

And when you were talking today, reminded me, I'm two years older than you reminded me of the nineteen sixty eight democratic convention in Chicago. Humphry was running with Muskie on his ticket and the place went crazy. And I was a kid in those days, young man, and I was leftist, I'm sort of that direction no longer that way. But I was, and I must went to that almost hit stike from here from California out there. Getting. I ended up joining the navy within a month, or so, after that, but review remember that. The place went up in flames. That was mayor Daley. That was the police response seven I think it called, Bobby Seale the Black Panthers. Their time heading. The whole crew.

So today's Democratic Party in many respects reminds me of the party back and then you mentioned that kindercare and, and whatnot of what these guys are today as opposed to let's say, Trump crowd, which is the complete opposite of that. And I just thought that was interesting. I'm glad I got through to make that comment because into sort of the ball on that one because I it does remind me of the sixty eight and it could go up at any moment, what they expect. Well, that the, the that was the democratic national convention in Chicago. And the Vietnam war was the back war for that backdrop for for that. Series of protests, and bombings and fires. Ostensibly the Vietnam war was. If you wanted to draw analogy comparison, Trump would be the equivalent of the Vietnam war, but my, my point. Here is I've often told people if you want to see where this country is headed. And you don't want it to go there, California's the model illegal immigration, sanctuary cities. Invite the way, folks, the news out of Los Angeles in it rat infested downtown police headquarters, five officers have been tested positive for typhus or something.

Even though he the only thing he did was to give two speeches, but that was sufficient physical go police to in authority is to invite him. So Charles Gary couldn't be there. So Bobby Seale would stand up every time. His name was mentioned, and he would try and cross examine witnesses and said because he didn't have a lawyer. And so over time he kept standing up standing up standing up to the judge finally lost his his cool to degree had one. And he had Bobby chain engaged, and he didn't just came to gag him. He they put a ball in his mouth and then put tape around the outside. So they tried to really stop him from making noise in the courtroom. But they never were. Able to do that. They never got him. So that he couldn't issue sounds of not real language. So the judge finally took him away. And then we had a debate of very interesting Jabbie, Jerry, and to some extent, David Dellinger wanted to disrupt the courtroom, and they thought that they wanted to we needed to support bobby's his rights Hayden. And I argued that we should not be disruptive in the courtroom that caused a lot of radicals to be angry at that position. And they've thought we should be more disruptive. So we asked Bobby what's do. And he said don't do anything. I have. I'm the focus of the racism that exists in this country a few disrupt the courtroom, you'll take away from me. And so Babi basically said don't do. Thing. And he then he was later taken just New Haven for the murder trial.

"It's day. Thirty six of the trial, and Bobby Seale and judge Julius Hoffman are still arguing the jury is once again asked to leave the courtroom, Mr Seal, I've admonished you previously. I have a right to cross examine the witness. What might happen to you? If you keep on talking. We are going to recess now. Young men if you keep this look old man, if you keep denying me, my constitutional rights, you are being exposed to the public and the world that you do not care about people's constitutional rights to defend themselves. Judge Hoffman reiterates his threat from the previous day. I will tell you that what I indicated yesterday might happen to you happen to me what can happen to me more than what Benjamin Franklin and George Washington did the black people in slavery. What can happen to me more than that? Mr seal. Do you want to stop or do you want me to direct the March? I want to argue the point we will take a recess take. Defendant into the room there and deal with him as he should be dealt with still want to be represented. I want to represent myself the Marshall turns to the nearest defense attorney William consular. Will you instruct the defendants serve that it is the order of the court that they will rise upon the recess. If that is a direction of the court, I certainly will pass it on let the record show. None of the defendants have stood at this recess in response to the marshalls require that direct show. He's all six marshals rushing and body seal. The other seven jump to their feet and Dave Dellinger. The pacifist tries to get between seal in the marshes. He's thrown to the floor. Get co founder Jerry Rubin hills for all to here. They're kicking him in the balls a Marshall punches him in the face, Tom. Hayden. Shouts above the Malay. Your honor? All he wants to be legally represented now be a slave here. The chaos of Chicago streets is now in your off me got pigs. Get off me the marshalls dragged Bobby into a backward. Bobby seals ankles and risk are put in chains. They get off. The marshalls tight thick white cloth around the back of his head and over his mouth. And then this is followed by perhaps the most shocking moment of all. He's brought bag in and the judge and Marshall's attempt to resume the trial as if nothing happened Mr. foreign would you like to proceed this is a true turning point? William consular can't contain himself. I wanted to say the records should indicate that Mr Seal is seated on a metal chair each hand is handcuffed to the leg of the chair on both the right and left sides. So he cannot raise his hands and gag is tightly pressed into his mouth and tied at the rear, and that when he attempts to speak, a muffled sound comes out as he has done several times since he has been bound and gagged. Bobby Seale has been muzzled but not silenced. Mr marshall. I don't think you've accomplished your purpose. Judge Hoffman orders yet another reset and the marshalls carry seal out once again still chained to his chair. When he's brought back in there's a plug like device in his mouth same story. The next day seal sits in the courtroom plugged and Enchaine's once again, he struggles against the marshes and share is kicked. At this point pandemonium breaks out again, marshalls elbow and punch defendants spectators and journalists the court sketch artist gets it all Lillian consular has never witnessed anything like this. And it's making him more radical by the second. This is no longer a quart of order your honor. This is a medieval torture chamber. It is a disgrace. They are salting the other defendants also. Yet. Again, the whole world is watching and the viewers at home have seen the hand-drawn images of the black men in chains on the front page of the morning papers. This is very bad publicity. Eventually seal is allowed to appear in court without the restraints the increasingly cranky judge peers down at the lead defense attorney Bill h Ray San Mateo county deputy sheriff is on the witness stand mister Kessler..

"You are being watched the Black Panthers. Bobby Seale quaking with rage whispers to his co defendants. That's a forgery. We never signed anything the Black Panthers. It's always the Black Panther party. Or if we'll be informal. The Black Panther party for self defense. There are actually two letters both sent to Christie king. She's young and through. Her sister has a connection to the peace corps. The defense sees these two points as being in their favor. They could also explain why someone working against them would want to frighten king off the jury. Defense attorney consular like seal knows the letters are bogus and tells the judge so we are at the point your honor where the defendants has seriously made a statement that they believe that the two letters in question were sent in some way by some agent of the government in order to prejudice them further in this trial. That is their position. I think they have publicly stated it and that is the position which they take judge Hoffman scoffs he sits elevated ten feet above the floor behind him hang several frame portrait's of the founding fathers Hoffman is certain those great men would be rolling in their graves if they could hear what was just said he squinched down at the defense table. I will let you try to prove that right now that is a very grave charge against an office of the government. Well, we obviously can't prove it your honor. Then don't say it. This is the clients. -sition that is my statement to make a statement like that is irresponsible. It's clear Kristie king is already badly rattled now. She's under judge Hoffman's microscope. He says to the young woman have you seen either of these letters? No, your honour. Well, then you'd better just take this right now and read it Christie does as instructed now knowing how you and your family have been threatened.

He just has to laugh these guys in a conspiracy. Hell they can't even agree on lunch. But judge Hoffman is not laughing. He sees a group of defendants and their lawyers clearly scheming to undermine his court. I wanna make a statement just a minute, sir. Who is your lawyer Bobby Seale looks directly at the judge. Charles r Gary as judge Hoffman knows along with everyone else. Charles. Our Gary is not in this courtroom Hoffman asks the jury to lean the courtroom for the third time today. It's only eleven o'clock. Maybe you forgotten so much has happened already. Charles are Gary is Bobby seals lawyer, but he isn't in the courtroom because he's at home in California recovering from gallbladder surgery. Seal tells the judge he doesn't want consular or Leonard wine glass to represent him. He wants Gary Gary asked Hoffman to postpone the trial for six weeks while he regained his health. But the judge refused. William consular gets up and tells judge Hoffman that to make an opening statement on Bobby seals behalf will compromise. His client's position that the trial. Can't go forward until he has the lawyer. He wants judge Hoffman replies. I don't ask you to compromise it, sir. But I will not permit him to address the jury with his very competent lawyer seated there if I were to make an opening statement, I would compromise his position that he has not his full council here. Mr Seal, you are not to make an opening statement. I saw order you. You are not permitted to in the circumstances of this case with that judge Hoffman asks the prosecution to call their first witness, Raymond Simon corporation counsel for Chicago in the city's top attorney takes the stand. He's up there because ABBIE Hoffman and Jerry Rubin approached him on August eighth. Nineteen sixty eight requesting permit for protesters to congregate in Lincoln park the week of. The democratic national convention Simon turn them down Rennie Davis and others from the national mobilization committee to end the war in Vietnam suit and Simon met with them. He says to try and find a solution prosecutor Thomas foreign addresses Simon. What did Mr. Davis say he said, if the city doesn't give us the park, there will be tens of thousands of people without a place to stay, and they will go into the parks and the police will drive them out, and they will run through the streets of the city, and there will be disorder and conflict and problems and the police will fight back, and there will be tear gas and Mace and Billy clubs. Davis didn't get what he wanted his lawsuit against the city of Chicago was dismissed meaning that if he and his protesters wanted to demonstrate in Lincoln park, they'd have to do. So without a permit the world saw what happened next tear gas Mace and Billy clubs. This begs the question was Rennie. Davis clearly leader just being irresponsible when he decided to go ahead with the rally knowing what could happen or as the prosecution has clearly suggesting was violence the goal all along.

"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.

Bobby Seale, Bill Ayers & Bernardine Dohrn on Police Repression, Fred Hampton Murder & Prison Strike

"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
