The Weather Underground (2002)

Directors:
Sam Green
Bill Siegel

 

THE WEATHER UNDERGROUND je bila u pochetku samo radikalna frakcija jedne pacifistichke studentske organizacije koja se borila mirnim protestima protiv rata u Vijetnamu. Kako su sukobi u Vijetnamu bili sve intenzivniji tako je nastala i ova grupa koja se parolom "Bring the war home" zalagala da se stvori okruzenju nalik ratnom i to u sred SAD-a i to sa ciljem da narod vishe ne bi mogao da zatvara ochi pred ratom koji se deshavao u Vijetnamu. Jedna od njihovih prvih akcija leta '68 je bila organizovanje demonstracija pod nazivom "Days of Rage" u centru Chikaga kada su unapred najavili da ce se sukobiti sa policijom ukoliko se ova bude pojavila (A.C.A.B.). Naravno ta akcija nije u potpunosti uspela jer se pojavilo samo 200-tinak ljudi ali su oni ipak krenuli u protest ulicama Chikaga naoruzani bejzbol palicama i usput lomili sve pred sobom a posebno izloge banaka i sve te simbole americhke imperije. Naravno ubrzo ih je sachekao jedan poveci kordon policije i kada su videli da nema nazad jednsotavno su se zaleteli na taj kordon i tu je nastao haos, policija je pucala bojevom municojom pa je bilo i dosta ranjenih. Naravno ovo je samo prva njihova akcija koja je bila i najblaza a usledili su neki mnogo ozbiljniji napadi na sistem. Americko javno mnjenje je bilo shokirano time shta se to izrodilo iz peace & love hipi pokreta 60-ih. Chak su se i ozloglasheni Crni Panteri ogradili od njih jer su ovi bili isuvishe militantni a i tvrdili su za WUnderground da su anarhisti i komunisti shto tad u to doba nije bilo bash popularno u SAD. FBI je tada imao poseban odred koji se bavio samo WU shto dovoljno govori o tome kolko je ova grupa bila ozbiljna. Crni Panteri su ubrzo potom bili ugasheni kao grupa prvenstveno zbog ubistva njihovog glavnog choveka Freda Hamptona u navodnom obrachunu sa policijom, ali WU je nekako i dalje opstala i pored svih pritisaka i represije. Posle prve bombashke akcije bili su prinudjeni da se povuku u totalnu ilegalu i odatle su akcijali sve do '80 godine. O svim vidovima njihove borbe (koja ukljuchuje i podmetanje bombi i sve shto se podrazumeva pod akcije prave urbane gerile) koja je trajala od '68 pa sve do kraja 70-ih govore bivsi chlanovi ove grupe od kojih su neki danas na dozivotnim robijama zbog "terorizma". Ovaj film najbolje ukazuje na to kolko je zajebano opstati sa takvom jednom militantnom grupom u borbi protiv sistema na duze staze i zashto velika vecina danashnjih "revolucionara" pribegava iskljuchivo peacefull metodama. Ovi ljudi su praceni, proganjani, prislushkivani i zivoti su im bukvalno unishteni od strane FBI-a.

IMDB


"In the 1960s and 1970s, the polarization of the political situation of the USA was becoming acute with the Vietnam War abroad and civil rights at home being but the most obvious issues. For the youth political movement, the seemingly ineffectual methods of peaceful protest and resistance led to the rise of an idealistic faction that want a more extreme approach that the Establishment could not ignore. This faction, called the Weather Underground, attempted to team up with the Black Panthers to violently confront the US government that started with street riots and escalating to bombing government targets. Thorough archival footage and interviews of the veterans of both sides of this conflict, this film covers the resistance movement's campaign of selective violence through this period until changing times and disillusionment brought it to an end while the FBI used unethical and illegal methods to hasten it."
