Between 1967-1972, there were hundreds of civil disobedience actions against U.S. draft boards, the Dow Chemical Company, and the FBI resulting in the destruction of hundreds of thousands of draft files and the orderly process of the U.S. government’s ability to wage war in Vietnam.
HIT & STAY tells the little-known story of the Action Community and the raids they staged that turned priests, nuns, and college students into fugitives and targets of the FBI. More than just a documentary about chemical weapons and stopping a war, it’s a story about people and relationships and all the complexities that lie therein.
