15,000 White House Pickets Denounce Vietnam War

B. This is a second article about our protest in April 1965:
April 17, 1965
Protest on Vietnam in the Capital Today

C. Here is an article about a protest we helped organize in 1962:

Stage Peace Demonstrations Demonstration Larger Backs Kennedy Reception Stirs Anger

D. This is an article about the student radical movement largely influenced and created by SDS. Though its author seems a bit condescending to and perplexed by the movement as a whole, it does provide a picture of this change in cultural paradigm towards a more radical and revolutionary way of thinking:

E. A great article about our own Paul Booth.

F. This article is a ridiculous criticism of SDS. Read it for laughs but it is truly insulting.
