About this Item

[2], 42 p. Includes illustrations. This type of Vietnam war era Anti-war ephemera (or propaganda) is increasingly rare in any condition. From an on-line posting: "As an anti-war and peace movement organization, the Indochina Peace Campaign (IPC) operated in such cities as Boston, New York, Detroit, and Santa Clara, Calif., from the years 1972 to 1975. Founded by the social activist Tom Hayden, the organization's professed aims included the mobilization of dissent against the Vietnam War, the formation of a broad-based campaign demanding unconditional amnesty for U.S. war resisters, and the dissemination of educational information on a wide variety of subjects connected to U.S. domestic and foreign policy. Within Massachusetts itself, the local organization (known as the Resource Center and located in Cambridge) worked steadily in the Boston area from its inception in October of 1972. Performing consistent outreach work by means of films, slide showings, and speaking tours, the Boston IPC also initiated a weekly newsclipping service on Indochina ("Southeast Asia Between the Lines") and assisted in the collection of general medical aid for Indochina (in connection with the Medical Aid to Indochina organization). It also lent a considerable mount of support when, in 1974, the national IPC spearheaded the formation of the United Campaign for Peace. Organized in response to the continued U.S. involvement in Indochina, the United Campaign embraced numerous peace groups and included such organizations as the American Friends Service Committee, Clergy and Laity Concerned, and the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom. In 1975, after the perceived completion of their work, the organizations comprising the IPC (including the Boston IPC) disbanded themselves. Their final act was to create two new organizations (the "Friends of Indochina" and the "Campaign for a Democratic Foreign Policy")--neither of which ever fully materialized." Fair.
