The Chicago Committee Against War and Racism held a rally and march, Saturday, August 25th, under the theme: “1968 & 2018: Unite Against War and Police Violence!” The rally was intended to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the watershed anti-war protests at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, while not being an exercise in nostalgia but the building of a new independent people’s movement against the U.S. government’s constant war-making and the related struggles against racism, poverty and police repression. The march from Daley Plaza to the General Logan Statue, site of iconic confrontations during the police riots and across from the Hilton Hotel were the delegates and press were staying, was addressed by Rich Whitney. That portion has no audio recording. Ahead of the event several people who experienced the "68 DNC" gave short remembrances.
