45 Years Without Justice
The Kent State Tragedy is Still Unresolved
What Actually Happened?
During the protests, the students peacefully spoke out and did not injure anybody. However, the Ohio National Guard stood from a distance, fired their deadly weapons, and killed and injured nearly 20 students that day.
Kent State students and the Ohio National Guard stand face-to-face as the Guard tries to contain the students at a distance.
These four victims were mercilessly shot on the day of the Kent State riots; one victim was not even part of the protests.
Begging for Mercy

How Can I Make a Difference?
Justice is yet to be had for those killed and injured that day, so when more young people become educated about the obscene tragedy of May 4th, the injustice is closer to being solved.
The government must be held accountable for what occurred at Kent State, so by learning about this issue, young people can stand up and demand justice for that day.
