Adventure 2-The Chicago Seven
Who Were The Chicago Seven?
What Did They Do And What Happened To Them?
David Dellinger was a pacifist and chairman of the National Mobilisation against the war. Tom Hayden and Rennie Davis were leaders of the Students for a Democratic Society. Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin were leaders of the Youth International Party. John Froines and Lee Weiner were local Chicago organisers and Bobby Seale was a cofounder of the Black Panther party. The Chicago seven were accused of conspiring to incite a riot at the 1968 Democratic National Convention. Because of this there was a five month trial that began in September, 1969. The trial was on going and the Chicago 8 clashed continually with the judge. When Bobby Seale's behaviour went out of control and got to be too much, he spent three days bound in court. After these three days, he was then sentenced for four years in prison. This is how the Chicago 8 lost one member and went down to Chicago 7. In February 1970, five out of the seven were found guilty but in 1972, people found out that the judge's convictions were wrong and errors were made.
