Will Republican convention be a Chicago '68 madhouse?

Hayden, the co-founder of Students for Democratic Society, a left-wing group that splintered in the late '60s and early '70s, with one faction resorting to terrorism, is predicting between 100,000 and 1 million protesters will be in New York for the convention beginning Aug. 30.

Hayden said there were at most 6,000 on hand in Chicago in 1968. This time, he predicted, it will be "bigger by a thousand fold," he told a foreign journalist.

No permits have yet been issued for any planned demonstrations. ... FR Reprint.
