Title:Seattle Eight Defense Committee
Date:1970
Description:

Calls for: Monetary contributions to cover "months of costly litigation in addition to the prospect of prison terms and heavy fines." Background information: "On April 16 [1970], the federal government, in its infinite wisdom, beatified eight more Movement leaders when Mike Abeles, Jeff Dowd, Michael Justesen, Joe Kelly, Michael Lerner, Roger Lippman, Charles Clark 'Chip' Marshall III, and Susan Stern were charged with conspiracy to incite a riot at the February 17 'TDA' demonstration ... Justesen disappeared underground, so the 'Seattle Eight' became the more mellifluous 'Seattle Seven.'" (Crowley, Walt. Rites of Passage: A Memoir of the Sixties in Seattle. Seattle: University of Washington Press. pp. 171-172) Note on date: 1970 is penciled on document.
