MayDay 1971

These are photos taken by activists/reporters for the DC area paper Washington Area Spark.  The Mayday protests were part of several days of protests sponsored by various antiwar organizations.  These groups included the Vietnam Veterans Against the War, Peoples Coalition for Peace and Justice, Socialist Workers Party, and the Mayday Tribe, whose slogan was "If the government won't stop the war, the people will stop the government."
