the bloodbath," "Smash imper-
ialism," "Peace now," "Stop
the war against black Amer-
ica," were other signs express-
ing apparently prevalent views.
An occasional frisbee flew
between the protesters and the
still blue sky, and at least one
.kite was sighted near the Cap-
itol steps. Many younger march-
ers displayed exuberance in
their dress, wearing Mickey
Mouse T-shirts or the m ore
.usual college T-shirts and work
shirts, and some openly flaunt-
ed marijuana and bottles of
wine.
A cotillion of NPAC trained
marshaills numbering close to
8,000 supervised the marchers,
defineating the route boundar-
ies as outlined in the parade
permit. The marshall's training,
according to Danny Kelley, a
student volunteer from New
York City, included role-play-
ing exercises and rudimentary
first aid,
In addition to the marshalls,

tors lending an official aura to
the proceedings.
Rep. Patsy Mink (D-Hawaii)
said she felt that in marching
she expressed not only her only
feelings but the prevalent senti-
ment in her state. "It's time for
Nixon to realize that this war
must end," Mink said.
The marchers converged upon
the Capitol grounds, rallying
before a four-hour speaking
program.
Speaking for the Vietnam
Veterans was John Kerry, who
charged, "This is a government
which cares more about the
legality of where men sleep
..than about where t hey throw
bombs." Referring to the G1's
protests, he said, "We're going
to keep coming back until the
war ends. If they don't end this
war, then we will alter the basic
policy of this country."
Other speakers included Rep.
Bella Abzug, (D-NY), Coretta
King, the Rev. Ralph Abernathy,
activist G.I. Andrew Pulley,

SMC coordinator Debby Buskin,
columnist I. F. Stone, and sev-
eral anti-war congressmen, in-
cluding Sen. V a n c e Hartke,
(D-Ind.).
When the speakers had fin-
ished, there was an awesome,
quiet shuffling of bodies as the
protesters turned away from
the center of their government,
where they had come to regis-
ter a dignified and solemn dis-
sent. The protesters turned
away together, some of them to
go home and hope for peace,"
others to stay in Washington to
engage in non-violent civil dis-
obedience as a continuation of
their protest.
