Synopsis:
This award-winning documentary tells the inspiring story of a group of radical priests, nuns, and everyday people who risked prison and took on the government to end the Vietnam War. On May 17, 1968, nine Catholic activists entered a Selective Service office in suburban Catonsville, Maryland, dragged stacks of draft records outside, and set them on fire with homemade napalm. They then prayed and waited to be arrested. After their trial captured national headlines others heard their call to action. Between 1967-1972, there were hundreds of acts of civil disobedience against U.S. draft boards and the Dow Chemical Co.
, resulting in the destruction of hundreds of thousands of 1-A draft files and the orderly process of the U.S. government's ability to wage war in Vietnam. "Hit and Stay" tells the hidden history of the action community and the raids they staged that turned priests, nuns, and college students into fugitives and targets of the FBI. Featuring coverage of: Baltimore Four, Catonsville Nine, Milwaukee 14, DC Nine, Chicago 16, Women Against Daddy Warbucks, Boston Eight, The Citizen's Commission to Investigate the FBI, Camden 28, and many more. Plus: Bill Ayers, Noam Chomsky, Ramsey Clark, Amy Goodman, and Howard Zinn.
