The image shows a man with a handlebar mustache being escored away by a Police officer (on the back, handwritten, the policeman is identified as a Berkeley officer). The officer has his thumb in the activists throat. The activist is carrying a rolled up pamphlet of some type, and his shirt is pulled up over his belly. Behind him, there is an additonal police officer, although you can only see a portion of his jacker and hand.

The Vietnam Day Committe was a protest in which anti-Vietnam war activists marched from Berkeley to Oakland in the hopes of shutting down the Oakland Army Induction Center.
