IRAn
CHRD I ON HAS CALLED
THIS DEm,,NSTRATION
MAY 21 & 22

WASHINGTON, D. Co

NIXON ASKED
FOR A- RESPONSE
When President Nixon ordered the
blockade of North Vietnamese har-
bors, he demonstrated a new level
of reckless aggression. What will he
do next? Not even he can know. And
yet, because this ie an election year,
he asks for our support and reminds
us that the whole world is watching
how we respond.
How do we respond to a President
who solemnly declares, "I, too, want
to end this war," as two tons of ex-
plosives fall every 60 seconds in Indo-
china? How do we respond to a Con-
gress which could end this war by its
vote, but instead permits the President
to send 50,000 additional air and
naval troops to Indochina in the past
three weeks? How do we respond to

a Pentagon which rains death upon
the Indochinese from the sea and air
with 650 additional fighter bombers
and B-52's?
The President has asked: "How
then will the American people re-
spond?" We will answer Nixon with
the People's Lobby, the People's
March and the People's Blockade of
the Pentagon.
THE PEOPLE'S
LOBBY
(NOW TILL JUNE)
We cannot wait for a new President
to end the war by next January. The
Congress could end the war by its
vote. In the next two weeks the House
of Representatives and the Senate
will decide if they are for war or for
peace. Come to Washington to in-
form, to persuade, to insist that Con-
gress respond to the American people
by ending the war now. We must fill
the offices, the hallways, the galleries
and the committee rooms to say to the
Congress - stop all business except
that which will stop the killing. A mas-
sive People's Lobby will occur on
Thursday, May 18th.

THE PEOPLE'S
MARCH
(SUNDAY, MAY 21, 1972)
The People's March and Rally will be
a peaceful and massive demonstra-
tion at which the American people
will tell the American government that
the blockade must s t o p. That the
bombing must stop. That all troops
must come home. That all support for
the Thieu Government must be with-
drawn. That the war must end im-
mediately. The rally will be held at
the Capitol. We will assemble at the
Ellipse behind the White House at
11 a.m.
THE PEOPLE'S
BLOCKADE OF
THE PENTAGON
(MONDAY, MAY 22, 1972)
We will gather for a massive non-
violent People's Blockade of arteries
and access routes to the Pentagon.
The blockade and mining of North
Vietnamese ports demands that we
confront and isolate the men who
execute this reckless escalation of the
war.
