Which side are you on? Decatur War Zone, Oct. 15, 1994

The trial began this week in the A.E. Staley workers' civil suit against the City of Decatur for a pepper gas assault on non-violent protestors at the Staley plant gate on June 25, 1994 -- the first anniversary of the company's union-busting lock-out.
