Draft card burned outside Selective Service HQ: 1970

A man wearing a helmet with a peace sign burns his draft card outside the Selective Service System headquarters at 1724 F Street NW, Washington, DC March 19, 1970.

 

A coffin filled with draft cards was also delivered to the office.

 

The anti-draft demonstrations took place in more than 100 cities over a three day period following a call of the New Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam and carried out largely by local units of the Society of Friends and the War Resisters League.
