1. Chicago. 1968.

I was ten -- old enough to remember seeing it on TV. Now here we go again 46 years later.

2. This is what we chanted over and over at the 68 convention as Daly's cops

assaulted and arrested the young people who were peacefully protesting. The whole world watched then and when the young black students were assaulted during the civil rights protests. How far have we come in almost 50 years? Sadly not far enough.

3. Its THE most powerful chant we can have and should use it all the time when we are marching.

Plus our demonstrations must be more theatrical ala Red Moon Theater as its the only way the media will cover us.
When I was in the anti NATO parade a few years ago it was pretty routine just marching along with various chants then every now and then the anarchists, all dressed in black with masks, would just come running through the crowd waving red flags. Everyone would go wild and they would really rev up the crowd then they would just disappear.
