Rubin Gets A Message: Yippie demonstrator Jerry Rubin displays a card with the Nazi emblem. He said it was on the door of his hotel room after yesterday's session of the House Un-American Activities Committee. The card is an advertisement for dialing a White Power message. Note the Black Power button on Rubin's hat. He also said his room was tear-gassed yesterday. At the October 4th session, anti-war demonstrators and their attorneys walked out in protest after one of the lawyers was ordered from the room. NB: Jerry Rubin (1938-1994) was an American social activist, anti-war leader, and counterculture icon during the 1960s and 1970s. He became a successful businessman in the 80s. Rubin gained his widest renown from the anti-Vietnam War protests during the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago and the subsequent "Chicago Seven" trial. In that trial, Rubin and six others were tried on charges of conspiracy to incite violence and crossing state lines with intent to riot. He helped found the Youth International Party, better known as the Yippies. Rubin was one of the leaders of the 1967 anti-war march on the Pentagon. William Kunstler (1919-1995) was an American lawyer and Civil Rights activist, known for his politically-unpopular clients. Kunstler was an active member of the National Lawyers Guild, a board member of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), and the co-founder of the Law Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR). Kunstler's defense of the Chicago Seven from 1969–1970 led The New York Times to label him "the country's most controversial and, perhaps, its best-known lawyer". Kunstler is also well known for defending members of the Catonsville Nine, Black Panther Party, Weather Underground Organization, the Attica Prison rioters, and the American Indian Movement. David Dellinger (1915-2004) was an influential American radical pacifist and an activist for nonviolent social change. He achieved peak notoriety as one of the Chicago Seven. He sat on the executive committee of the Socialist Party of America and the Young People's Socialist League, its youth section, until he left in 1943, and he was also a longtime member of the War Resisters League. In the 1950s and the 1960s, Dellinger joined freedom marches in the South and led many hunger strikes in jail.
