Statement of Jerry Rubin on the Chicago Indictments

description

Early unpublished draft of a statement by Jerry Rubin acknowledging his federal indictment citing "This is the greatest honor of my life. It is with sincere humility that I accept this federal indictment." Rubin continues on to thank "all those who made it possible" and joke that the "competition was fierce." Rubin speaks sarcastically of his indictment throughout statement, which he would later incorporate in modified format as "the academy award of protest acceptance speech" within his essay “Inside the Great Pigasus Plot,” published in Ramparts, vol. 8, no. 6 (December 1969).
