The Chicago Riots 1968
The 1968 Democratic National Convention had a significant amount of protest
activity. In 1967, protest groups had been promising to come to Chicago and
disrupt the convention, and the city promised to maintain law and order. For
eight days, protesters and police battled for control of the streets of Chicago,
whilst the US Democratic Party met at the convention. Given the atmosphere
in the International Amphitheater, one would not think it possible that a major
conflict between Chicago police and protesters was taking place just a few
miles away. Confrontation in the streets, however, had a greater impact than
the seating of racially mixed delegates from southern states, credential and
platform battles, and even the presidential nomination. -Wikipedia.org
Stonewall Protests 1967
The Stonewall riots were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations
against a police raid that took place in the early morning hours of June 28,
1969, at the Stonewall Inn, in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New
York City. They are frequently cited as the first instance in American history
when people in the homosexual community fought back against a
government-sponsored system that persecuted sexual minorities, and they
have become the defining event that marked the start of the gay rights
movement in the United States and around the world.
