West Coast Longshore Strike: 1400 members of the International Longshoremen’s Association (ILA) in Vancouver go on strike for higher wages. The strike is eventually defeated through the use of strikebreakers and armed thugs.
The Weatherman group engages in three “Days of Rage” in Chicago in an effort to “Bring the War Home”. The action succeeds in inflicting property damage (breaking windows, wrecking cars) but dozens of Weather members are injured, 287 are arrested, including most of the leaders, and the organization has to find a quarter of a million dollars for bail money to get people out of jail. Afterwards, members of the group go underground and become the Weather Underground.
