In the 1960s and the 1970s, the polarization of the political situation of the USA was becoming acute, with the Vietnam War abroad and civil rights at home being but the most obvious issues.  Through archival footage and interviews, this film covers the resistance movement's campaign of selective violence during this period, until changing times and disillusionment brought it to an end, while the FBI used illegal methods to hasten it.

 
Our purpose is to increase awareness of international political cultures and structures through reading, discussion, film, and travel.  Come join us! For the Spring 2011 semester, we are meeting the 2nd Monday of the month at 3:00pm in Club Room 2068 (upstairs in the cafeteria).
