Description
This program covers the anti-war demonstration that took place in Washington, D.C. on January 20, 1973 to protest President Richard Nixon's second inauguration and the Vietnam War. The demonstration was titled a "March Against Death and for Peace." This program included commentaries from the following activists: Philip Aloysius Hart (December 10, 1912-December 26, 1976), a Democrat from Michigan elected in 1959 to serve in the U.S. Senate; Paul Norton Pete McCloskey, Jr. (b. September 29, 1927), a Republican from California elected in 1967 to serve in the U.S House of Representatives; and Philip Francis Berrigan (October 5, 1923-December 6, 2002), a peace activist involved in a number of high profile anti-war protests. Berrigan served several prison sentences for his civil disobedience. Also includes Barbara Roberts, M.D. (b. 1944), an activist in the women's movement who co-founded the Women's National Abortion Action Coalition and completed her residency at Yale New Haven Hospital; Barry Romo, a member of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War; Jerry Gordon, Cleveland lawyer, anti-war activist, and member of the National Peace Action Coalition (NPAC); and Bella Savitsky Abzug (July 24, 1920-March 31, 1998), a lawyer from New York elected in 1971 to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives. As a social activist, Savitsky co-founded the National Women's Political Caucus.
