"What's Going On? California and the Vietnam Era" Exhibition at the Great Hall, August 28, 2004-February 28, 2005.

A yellow card with black print regarding membership to the Vietnam Day Committee. The first page reads as: name ______________ member of the VIETNAM DAY COMMITTEE a member is good standiing is one who is active on a committee. (Full Statement on Other Side...) The reverse reads: The Vietnam Day Committee is a group of students, faculty and other members of the Bay Area community opposed to American intervention in Vietnam, the Dominican Republic and wherever else it may occur. Revolutionary struggles for self-determination are sweeping the world today. American suppression of these movements, we believe, is immoral, and a threat to the peace of the world. The Vietnam Day Committee is organizing nonviolent direct actions, teach-ins, door-to-door organzing and other educationalactivities to oppose American intervention. We believe that the struggle for self-determination in other continents is related to the struggle for democracy in America- - a democracy in which the people have the facts and the power to make decisions for themselves. The struggles in AMerica are against racism, poverty, and bureaucratic conformity are part of the same movement as the struggle against American militarism. We must build a New America and join with those peoples in Asia, Africa and Latin America in building a New World.
