The upper left corner of the poster has a black and white photograph of Richard M. Nixon; shown from the chest up he is looking back at the camera and pointing with his left hand. The upper right corner of the poster has the text: "America / Says: / Actions / Speak / Louder / Than / Words". The bottom of the poster has text in two columns starting with: "For the last nine years and three Presidents America has been hear- / ing that troops were being brought home from Southeast Asia as quickly / as possible, yet today there are still more American Soldiers in Southeast / Asia than ever before. How can we continue to believe in Nixon's desire / to end the war when his every action denies this? Troops come and go; / there are games of escalation and de-escalation, and the war keeps / growing. / Likewise, most Americans say they are against the war, yet continue / to do 'business as usual.' The actions of American students speak / louder than Nixon's words. Universities everywhere are closing down / and working against the war, and will do so until the last soldier is / home. If Americans are really eager to end the war let us take direct / action. / Some suggestions are provided here: let each of us act against the / war in our own way, but let us, at least, Act.". The remainder of the text is a list of 15 proposals for acting against the war.
