What was intended to be a peaceful protest at the 1968 Democratic National Convention turned into a violent clash with the police and the National Guard. The organizers of the protest – Abbie Hoffman, Tom Hayden, Jerry Rubin, Rennie Davis, David Dellinger, Lee Weiner & John Froines along with Bobby Seale, the co-founder of the Black Panthers were charged with conspiracy to incite a riot and the trial that followed was one of the most notorious in history.
To commemorate the anniversary of this monumental trial, The Trial of the Chicago 7 will be available globally for 48 hours for free on Netflix US YouTube Channel – Friday, Feb. 19th @ 12am PST – Saturday, Feb 20th @ 11:59pm PST
