Description

The “Joint Treaty of Peace Between the People of the United States and the People of South Vietnam and North Vietnam” was developed by representatives of student peace organizations from the U.S. and Vietnam in December 1970. That month, a delegation sponsored by the National Student Association flew to Paris and then attempted to fly to Saigon to meet with students, but were turned away. In Hanoi, they met with student representatives from South
Vietnam and North Vietnam. The participants in the meetings hoped to foster peace by detailing key principles that all parties in the conflict could agree on. The treaty was endorsed by a number of politicians and celebrities, including Eugene J. McCarthy, Daniel Berrigan, Phillip Berrigan, Noam Chomsky, Charles E. Goodell, I. F. Stone, George Wald, Erich Segal, Rock Hudson, Vietnam Veterans Against the War, the New University Conference and others.
