UMD Students Confront Hypocrisy During Protests: 1972

An anonymous flyer passed out at the University of Maryland protesting the trials of two students for incidents that occurred on campus during demonstrations against the Indochina War in May 1972.

 

The flyer contrasts the United States use of napalm and cancer-causing defoliants in Indochina with the crimes that the students were charged with.

 

The last names of the two students named in the flyer have been removed to protect their privacy.
