Quicksilver Times Shutting it Down: 1971

The Quicksilver Times alternative newspaper collective was closely involved in the planning and publicity for the Mayday protests that attempted to shut down the government May 3-5, 1971 in protest against the continued war in Indochina.

 

This issue of the newspaper acted as the principle guide for many participants in the greater Washington, D.C. area
