Avocado Day Thread

The Pigasus J Pig Day Thread (October 16, 2020)

The Trial of the Chicago 7 is released on Netflix today, written and directed by Aaron Sorkin, so this thread is dedicated to Pigasus J Pig, the 145-pound porcine candidate nominated for president by the Yippies in 1968.

The film is based upon the notorious trial of seven men – including organizers Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden and Bobby Seale – who were charged by the federal government with conspiracy to incite a riot and more, after the peaceful protests at the 1968 Democratic National Convention degraded into violent clash with police and the National Guard.

Have a great day and take care of yourselves and those around you, Avocadians!
