Sioux Falls Free Thinkers endorse Kent State for showing that
these were not "Riots." They were protests against the war,
against the killing by our war machine of the innocent
people of Vietnam. The military wanted to stop
dissent to so it tried killing dissenters.
It tried the same thing in Vietnam. It was called Operation
Phoenix. They killed 25,000 "spies" without trial. So
much for American respect for human rights.

Based on a true incident, Kent State follows the personal stories of the four students who were killed by National Guards-men on the Ohio college campus in the spring of 1970. Co-written by Emmy winner Gerald Green, the chilling drama vibrantly reenacts the strife-filled era when college students left their classrooms to demonstrate against U.S. participation in the Vietnam War only to be met by weary and tense soldiers primed for confrontation. Directed by James Goldstone, Kent State is a compelling tragedy of recent American history that must not be forgotten.

Based on the true story of the student protests at Kent State University in Ohio. This film focuses on the four students who were killed when the National Guard attempted to quell the riots that began on May 4, 1970, after President Nixon announced that American troops would begin bombing the heretofore neutral country of Cambodia.
