What was intended to be a peaceful protest at the 1968 Democratic National Convention turned into a violent clash with police and the National Guard. The organizers of the protest—including Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden, and Bobby Seale—were charged with conspiracy to incite a riot, and the trial that followed was one of the most notorious in history.
The Trial of the Chicago 7 arrives on Netflix on October 16th.
