Washington DC: National Peace Action Coalition, 1971. First Edition. Tabloid-sized bifolium (44.5cm); photo-illustrated newsprint wrappers; pp; illus. Mild toning to extremities, with a few short tears to margins; Near Fine.
Attractive example of this tabloid created by the National Peace Action Coalition (NPAC) for the April 24, 1971 anti-war mobilization in Washington, D.C. The NPAC, controlled by the Socialist Workers Party and its offshoots, aimed for the mobilization to bring together a wide array of forces, though they vehemently opposed the employment of any tactics that went beyond legally-permitted protest. The center of the tabloid features a large map of Washington, D.C., with a key denoting rally points, dispatch centers, movement centers, and listing events of special interest. Rear wrapper features a list of upcoming demonstrations and events, highlighting the role of the NPAC, and providing a list of local PAC's. OCLC notes a single holding (U.Virginia).
