The Chicago Seven were the Chicago Seven, and there's something to that.  Every time a group of people are arrested you can't just call them the "insert location + number of arrested" and create an analog. I support the strikers but don't be lazy.
where they belong.

Instead, they mostly sit on their fat asses all day and collect a great income with excellent retirement. and they do what the asshole administrators who make the really good salaries tell them to do.
