The right to protest and the methods authorities use to control protesters are a constant concern in our society.

Kent State University, Ohio, May 4, 1970; 13 seconds, 67 bullets, 9 wounded, 4 dead. Former students and Ohio National Guardsmen reflect on the events of May 1-4, 1970, that led to the shooting at Kent State University. Archival footage, photos, and individual reminiscences evoke the emotional responses to student protests over the United States’ involvement in Southeast Asia.

    This is an important film in view of peaceful protests yesterday and today. It is our history.
