This poster was designed to encourage draft resistance and protest against the Vietnam War . I can't stop admiring it. It's brilliant. I wish there were more posters like this today, instead of posters of horrible bands in power stance poses or 'witty' beer-drinking ones.
I'm not really a fan of Joan Baez's music, but I'm interested in her involvement with protests. I think I need to check out the library for a biography, or something of the like. After all, my student ID is still valid for 08.

I have a crush on the scruffy young man seated behind Joan, to the left, in white. I wonder who he is, or was? I actually wonder what all these people are doing now, well over 30 years later.
