Mayor Bloomberg Endangers 100,000’s of Protesters’ Safety For A Lawn

kirsten anderberg | In 1968, a wide swath of American protests groups and community activists put out a call to “Come to Chicago” for a festival of free events, free music, and a large anti-war and civil rights protest, during the Democratic National Convention (DNC). The Vietnam War resistance was heating up (though that war would continue on for many more years thereafter), and the war was being fought under a Democratic national leadership, thus the DNC target. Knowing full well that unprecedented numbers, included a large amount of American youth, were going to swell in their city streets, Mayor Daley and the Chicago Police, along with other city, state and federal officials, continued to deny proper permits until the 11th hour, if then. Then they used their own denial of permits until said time to justify horrific violence upon nonviolent protesters, press, clergy, and “started beating everybody on the street who was not a policeman.” To see a blueprint of what is going on in NYC right now, in preparation for the Republican National Convention (RNC) in 2004, you need look no further than Daniel Walker’s official report to the National Commission on the Causes and Prevention of Violence, released (impressively, as far as timeliness goes) in late November, 1968, after the August 1968 protests and police riots in Chicago. more...  3 Comments
