Hit & Stay: 1968-75
The hit and stay movement primarily involved non violent destruction of government or corporate offices that contributed to the war effort in Vietnam.

Activists, mainly led by left leaning Catholic priests, would enter buildings and destroy records, sometimes symbolically pouring human blood on the equipment, files and furniture.

After performing these acts, the participants would remain on site and await arrest. They would then attempt to use their trials to bring attention to injustices.

Phillip and Daniel Berrigan were the informal leading activists of this movement, but it spread across the country.
