“The Trial of The Chicago 7” – History is Repeating Itself

Right in time for the elections, Netflix has officially released The Trial Of Chicago 7, a controversial movie written and directed by the one and only Academy and Emmy Award Winner Aaron Sorkin.

I’m not sure if I’m experiencing deja-vu or if history is repeating itself, or if humanity is just a lost cause completely incapable of learning sh*t (that may be it…) but the events in 1968 have a scary resemblance with what’s happening today in the very same country; police brutality, discrimination based on skin color, conservative judges, and a corrupt judicial system…you would think we would have made some progress but sometimes I question if we are actually moving backwards…

Inspired by what was intended to be a peaceful protest at the 1968 Democratic National Convention that 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.

Don’t miss this thrilling, blood boiling movie that will definitely make you go vote if you haven’t yet.
