Weather Underground

Stefan Beck on Armavirumque draws our attention to a upcoming showing here at Dartmouth of the Weather Underground documentary, with a post-screening discussion by former Weatherman Bill Ayers. The Oscar-nominated film is here at Dartmouth courtesy of the Greens, the Government and Film Studies Departments, and the Free Press. You can read the thoughts of his fellow Weatherwoman Naomi Jaffe here.

As the film's official website states, the WU bombed government facilities across the country, including the US Capitol, broke Timothy Leary out of prison, and fought on the streets with Chicago police. All in the name of "idealistic passion" (which I'm sure Timothy McVeigh and Osama bin Laden possess in abundance).
