    The Camden 28

    As I watched The Camden 28 tonight, I was reminded that war and protests against war in the USA have shifted.

    This action in 1971 was a shrewd tactical protest against the war with very specific concrete and achievable goals. While there were flaws in the planning (notably infiltration by an agent provocateur for the FBI), it was in the tradition of the previous Catholic "left" actions such as the events around the Catonsville Nine.

    Do actions like this still happen? If they do, they don't seem to get much press.
