I saw Underground back in 1976 when it came out. I feel it should be
released in video form for us to rewmember the days of the Weather
Underground and for our youth to observe history as it was being made by
the participants
There has been too much historical revisionism being thrown in our faces
(i.e., the Warren Report) and this shit must stop and the truth about
that era must come out.
