Robert Kennedy Assassination (June 5, 1968)

In the night of June 5th Robert F. Kennedy is critically injured during an assassination in Los Angeles. Only a few hours earlier the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate had won the primaries in California. Kennedy celebrates his victory at his campaign headquarters in the Hotel Ambassador. Later that night there is a press conference in the hotel. Kennedy takes a shortcut through the kitchen, where the young Palestinian immigrant Sirhan Sirhan fires several shots at him. A day later the 42-year old politician succumbs to his injuries.

It is assumed that Sirhan’s motive was his growing anger over Bobby Kennedy’s pro-Israel remarks. The perpetrator had left behind a note that said that the New York senator had to die before June 5, which was the first anniversary of the Six-Day War. Due to contradictions about the actual circumstances of the crime--not unlike in the murder of his brother John F. Kennedy five years earlier—there are numerous speculations and conspiracy theories, lasting until today. One of them claims, that the CIA had a hand in the assassination in order to save the country from a politician they deemed too liberal.

“RFK” does in fact criticize President Johnson’s Vietnam policies, and he is actively opposed to racial discrimination and social inequality, all of which makes him a bearer of hope for young people, students and African and Hispanic Americans. In this faithful year of 1968 his death adds yet more tremor to the already torn and traumatized United States.
