Shot in October 1969, this tape gives an inside view of the workings of late-sixties radical groups and the debates going on within their ranks. At a meeting of Yippies, there is a discussion about the nuts and bolts of fundraising through benefit concerts and events in an attempt to finance support efforts related to the Chicago 8 Conspiracy Trial. Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin are interviewed. Those present discuss radicalization, and the recent "Days of Rage" actions of The Weathermen.
