- Announces: "Mass meeting on the action," Wednesday, 7:30 P.M., at the HUB, to organize The Day After demonstration at the Federal Courthouse.
Quote from document: "Everytime the defense raises relevant questions about the war and racism, Judge Hoffman overrules them at the same time that he upholds hundreds of the prosecution's objections. The explanation for this is simple. Hoffman and Company cannot allow the one thing inside the courtroom - the truth. The truth about the rulers of this country's attempt to destroy Vietnam, the blacks and anyone brave enough to try and stop them."
Background information: The Conspiracy Eight (or "Chicago Eight") included Jerry Rubin, Abbie Hoffman, David Dellinger, Rennie Davis, Tom Hayden, John Froines, Lee Weiner, and Bobby Seale. They stood trial on charges of crossing state lines with the intent to incite violence at the 1968 Democratic National Convention.
Background information: The Day After demonstration occurred in Seattle on February 17, 1970. About 2,000 people led by the Seattle Liberation Front assaulted the Federal Court House with "tear gas, smoke bombs, rocks, and paint." (Crowley, Walt. Rites of Passage: A Memoir of the Sixties in Seattle. Seattle: University of Washington Press. p. 281)
