(EDITOR'S NOTE: The following is an eye-
witness account of the clash between police and
youths Monday night in Chicago and the events
leading up to it. It was obtained over the tele-
phone from a reporter for two other news-
papers, who asked that his name not be used
because of his obligations to the other publi-
I got to the bindshell area in Grant
Park about four in the afternoon. People
had been arriving since nine that morn-
ing and about 75,000 people were there.
The crowd was much bigger than the
audience for the program that preceded
the riots during the 1968 Democratic
The temperature was about 94 degrees,
and it was very humid. Four large bleach-
ers which had been set up were entirely
filled. People were sprawled all over the
area, sitting on top of concession stands
and 60 foot-high speaker platforms.
It had been advertised that Sly and the
Family Stone would play, but the first
band was a group called the Fat Water.
People in the audience started yelling,
"Sly, Sly." Someone made an announce-
ment that Sly and the Family Stone
would not play until everyone got down
off the speaker stands and cleared the
area directly in front of the bandshell'
which was occupied by Andy Frain ushers.
Andy Frain is the name of a private
security force that was hired by Reach-
out-Chicago's summer program to keep
the blacks in the city cool.
Right after this announcement was
made a group of about 30 young black
street kids rushed on to the stage and
started taking off with microphones, am-
plifiers and other band equipment.
Then people in the audience started
throwing bottles at the stage to try and
get the kids off. The kids on stage ex-
ited through a backstage door which
opened out onto the police first aid sta-
tion set up in the softball field north of
Other people from the audience started
joining the blacks who had been on stage
in stoning the police behind the band-
shell. One police car was overturned.
At this point I was standing on the
sidelines of the softball field behind the
bandshell, but I heard that there were
about 40 or 50 policemen in front of the
bandshell throwing tear gas into the
More police came into the softball field
area and battle lines started forming.
There were about 400 police and close
to 1,500 people from the audience. The
front lines of each group were about 30
The kids were throwing rocks, bottles,
and anything they could grab at the
police. Then about 50 white kids formed
a line in front of the police as if to pro-
tect them, flashing V's and shouting,
"Peace, peace, peace," at the crowd.
The police pulled these white kids off
the field and began returning the volley
of rocks to the crowd. Occasionally two
or three cops would go after one individ-
ual as he was leaving the area to arrest
him, and plainclothesmen were going be-
hind the lines of street people making
During this time I heard two shots fired
in front of the bandshell.
Around 6:00 p.m. the battle started
moving towards the north end of the
field. and new front lines were formed on
Balbo Drive which borders the softball
field on the North. At that time the sky
was becoming overcast and it had started
to rain lightly.
The kids, who were on the north side
of the street, turned over a driving school
car parked there and set it on fire. Then
they moved into the police camp on the
south side of Balbo Drive and turned over
one police car.
About 15 cars tried to get through the
street during the battle, including one fire
marshall's car. All of them were stonec.
Kids were throwing a constant barrage
of bottles and stones at the police lines.
Manhole covers were being broken up and
used as artillery. Three kids tore down a
streetlamp and used it as a battering ram
against the police.
