    Background: Chicago police this week (Thursday) evicted a group of Indians from an abandoned missile site along the shores of Lake Michigan after a 90 minute battle, in which three policemen and one park employee were injured. Twelve Indians were arrested.

    The Indians too, over the site on 14th June, protesting at a lack of accommodation for them in the city. They moved in after a fire destroyed an abandoned three story block of flats which they had seized last March.

    The film includes an English commentary by National Broadcasting Company reporter David Klein.
