Stop the Draft Week on Trial - Defend the Oakland 7

Title

Stop the Draft Week on Trial - Defend the Oakland 7

Subject

Anti-Vietnam War Movement

Description

In 1967, anti-war activists shifted tactics from “protest to resistance” to the War in Vietnam, seeking more militant means on the home front to challenge U.S. policy in Southeast Asia. In October of that year, anti-war activists organized the first “Stop the Draft Week,” an effort to engage in civil disobedience at draft induction centers. Most famously, in Oakland, hundreds of activists marched on the Oakland Army Induction Center in an effort to shut it down. Police responded with widespread violence and numerous arrests. This poster promotes an effort to support the Oakland 7.
