Peace Photos of GI March, October 12, 1968.

Estuary Press is proud to announce the publication on our web site of new galleries of peace photos by Harvey Richards of the Peace Movement in California from 1958 to 1972.  Photo galleries display the powerful and continuous outpourings of anti-war protests that helped bring about the forced withdrawal of American troops from the unjust war in Vietnam and that put an end to the draft.  The new photo galleries feature, among other things, images of the earliest public outcries against nuclear testing, the protests against napalm bombing, the Stop the Draft sit ins in Oakland, the large peace marches in San Francisco against the war and the involvement of GIs in the protest movement.  It is a record of decency and concern that deserves its place among the proudest accomplishment of the American people.  And it is a record which shows what dissent can accomplish when the people rise up and make their feelings perfectly clear.  Please take a look today and in the weeks to come as more galleries are being published weekly. Comments and sharing are welcome.

  1. Came across your website looking for SF in 1960’s. Lived In SF from 1963 to 1972 and participated in many of the anti-war demos in SF & Berkeley & Oakland. View “No Greater Cause Film” film. Distinctly remembered the nurse speaking. Looked thru photos. This is a very good collection. Find little elsewhere.

    Questions: 1. there was an anti-war referendum in SF. Are there any pictures of the signatures being taken to City Hall 1967?
    2. Day after Kent State in 1971, City College of SF had a spontaneous outpouring of students on the campus looking for ways to voice their opinion. Do you have pictures of this?

    I want to write about experience in SF at that time bacause it was so incredible. I still think it was, looking back. And your pictures and film are a great source for that history.

    Thanks for any info you can provide. Hope you get many people interested.

  2. I don’t have anything on the two items you mention. Glad the photos and film were helpful. I hope you do write about that period. It was remarkable in so many ways.
