By law, the judge was required to allow David Dellenger to address the court before passing sentence. He began be asking, ?I hope you will do me the courtesy not to interrupt me while I am talking. ?I won?t interrupt you as long as you are respectful,Judge Julius Hoffman replied. ?Well, I will talk about the facts and the facts don?t always encourage false respect. Now I want to point out first of all that the first two contempts cited against me concerned ...the war against Vietnam, and racism in this country, the two issues this country refuses to solve, refuses to take seriously. Hoffman ordered him to stop, but Dave was on a roll. ?You see, he said, ?that?s one of the reasons I have needed to stand up and speak anyway, because you have tried to keep what you call politics, which means the truth, out of this courtroom, just as the prosecution has. Ignoring the judge?s command that he sit down and shut up, Dave continued. ?You want us to be like good Germans supporting the evils of our decade and then when we refused to be good Germans and came to Chicago and demonstrated, now you want us to be like good Jews, going quietly and politely to the concentration camps while you and this court suppress freedom and the truth. And the fact is that I am not prepared to do that. You want us to stay in our place like black people were supposed to stay in their place, like poor people were supposed to stay in their place, like people with formal education are supposed to stay in their place, like women are supposed to stay in their place, like children are supposed to stay in their place, like lawyers are supposed to stay in their places. It is a travesty on justice and if you had any sense at all you would know that the record that you read condemns you and not us. And it will be one of thousands and thousands of rallying points for a new generation of Americans who will not put up with tyranny, will not put up with a facade of democracy without the reality. ?I sat here and heard that man Mr. Foran say evil, terrible, dishonest things that even he could not believe in. I heard him say that and you expect me to be quiet and accept that without speaking up. People no longer will be quiet. People are going to speak up. I am an old man and I am just speaking feebly and not too well, but I reflect the spirit that will echo throughout the world. At this point, according to the transcript, there was applause and ?complete disorder in the courtroom. It was no exaggeration. Tucker recalled. ?As two marshals tried to hustle David out of the courtroom, his daughter Michelle, who was 13 at the time, stood up and screamed something like 'Leave my dad alone.' Her sister Natasha also stood and screamed, and several marshals, there must have been at least 20 in the courtroom, plowed into the audience and jumped on the two girls. David yelled, 'leave my daughters alone,' shucked off the marshals like they were a couple of annoying mosquitoes and rushed to his daughters aid, joined by Abbie Hoffman and a spectator who leapt over two rows of benches onto the back of one of the marshals. An army of marshals grabbed Dave to drag him away, and the courtroom erupted. Everyone -- the audience, the press, the defendants and their lawyers -- was screaming or shouting or sobbing. No one who was there will ever forget it.
*=*=*=*=* MR. KUNSTLER: After you arrived in Chicago did you have any discussion with Jerry? THE WITNESS: Yes, I did. We discussed the nomination of a pig for President. MR. KUNSTLER: Would you state what you said and what Jerry said. THE WITNESS: We discussed the details. We discussed going out to the countryside around Chicago and buying a pig from a farmer and bringing him into the city for the purposes of his nominating speech. MR. KUNSTLER: Did you have any role yourself in that? THE WITNESS: Yes, I helped select the pig, and I paid for him. MR. KUNSTLER: Now, did you find a pig at once when you went out? THE WITNESS: No, it was very difficult. We stopped at several farms and asked where the pigs were. MR. KUNSTLER: None of the farmers referred you to the police station, did they? THE WITNESS: No. MR. FORAN: Objection. THE COURT: I sustain the objection. MR. KUNSTLER: Mr. Ochs, can you describe the pig which was finally bought? MR. FORAN: Objection. THE COURT., I sustain the objection. MR. KUNSTLER: Would you state what, if anything, happened to the pig? THE WITNESS: The pig was arrested with seven people. MR. KUNSTLER: When did that take place? THE WITNESS: This took place on the morning of August 23, at the Civic Center underneath the Picasso sculpture. MR. KUNSTLER: Who were those seven people? THE WITNESS: Jerry Rubin. Stew Albert, Wolfe Lowenthal, myself is four; I am not sure of the names of the other three. MR. KUNSTLER: What were you doing when you were arrested? THE WITNESS: We were arrested announcing the pig's candidacy for President. MR. KUNSTLER: Did Jerry Rubin speak? THE WITNESS: Yes, Jerry Rubin was reading a prepared speech for the pig---the opening sentence was something like, "I, Pigasus, hereby announce my candidacy for the Presidency of the United States." He was interrupted in his talk by the police who arrested us. MR. KUNSTLER: What was the pig doing during this announcement? MR. FORAN: Objection. MR. KUNSTLER: Do you remember what you were charged with? THE WITNESS: I believe the original charge mentioned was something about an old Chicago law about bringing livestock into the city, or disturbing the peace, or disorderly conduct, and when it came time for the trial, I believe the charge was disorderly conduct. MR. KUNSTLER: Were you informed by an officer that the pig had squealed on you? MR. FORAN: Objection. I ask it be stricken. THE WITNESS: Yes.
WESTMORELAND O that we now had here But one ten thousand of those men in England That do no work to-day! KING HENRY V What's he that wishes so? My cousin Westmoreland? No, my fair cousin: If we are mark'd to die, we are enow To do our country loss; and if to live,The fewer men, the greater share of honour.God's will! I pray thee, wish not one man more. By Jove, I am not covetous for gold,Nor care I who doth feed upon my cost;It yearns me not if men my garments wear; Such outward things dwell not in my desires:But if it be a sin to covet honour,I am the most offending soul alive. No, faith, my coz, wish not a man from England: God's peace! I would not lose so great an honour As one man more, methinks, would share from me For the best hope I have. O, do not wish one more! Rather proclaim it, Westmoreland, through my host,That he which hath no stomach to this fight,Let him depart; his passport shall be madeAnd crowns for convoy put into his purse:We would not die in that man's company That fears his fellowship to die with us.This day is called the feast of Crispian: He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,Will stand a tip-toe when the day is named,And rouse him at the name of Crispian. He that shall live this day, and see old age, Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours, And say 'To-morrow is Saint Crispian:'Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars. And say 'These wounds I had on Crispin's day.'Old men forget: yet all shall be forgot, But he'll remember with advantages What feats he did that day: then shall our names. Familiar in his mouth as household words Harry the king, Bedford and Exeter, Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester,Be in their flowing cups freshly remember'd.This story shall the good man teach his son; And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,From this day to the ending of the world,But we in it shall be remember'd; We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he to-day that sheds his blood with me Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile, This day shall gentle his condition: And gentlemen in England now a-bed Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.
