Columbia University 1968 - Photo #89 - Aftermath

Three years before the Columbia strike, the Viet Nam war was promoted from an obscure "police action" to a full-scale war. Massive demonstrations against it had little effect. Here, pacifists Dave Dellinger, editor of Liberation Magazine, and Yale history professor Staughton Lynd at a nonviolent 1965 antiwar demonstration in Washingon DC, are splattered with red paint by angry super-patriots.
