Free All Political Prisoners - anti-Vietnam War Protest Poster

  • 1971
  • 12 x 19 inches ~ (30 x 48 cm)
  • Unbacked

    This poster is currently unbacked. At check out, you will be given the opportunity to add backing which would cost $65 and take approximately 6-8 weeks.

    Linen backing is the industry standard of conservation. Canvas is stretchered and a sheet of acid free barrier paper is laid down. The poster is then pasted to the acid free paper using an acid free paste. This process is fully reversible and gives support to the poster. A border of linen is left around the poster and can be used by a framer to mount the poster so that nothing touches the poster itself. Backing is what we recommend for framing, and for any poster needing restoration.

  • Peoples Coalition for Peace and Justice

    On April 24, 1971, 500,000 people demonstrated against the Vietnam War in Washington, D.C. It was the largest-ever demonstration opposing a U.S. war. Simultaneously, 150,000 people marched at a rally in San Francisco.
    During the weeks following the April 24 protest, massive civil disobedience was conducted attempting to shut down the U.S. government during the People’s Coalition for Peace & Justice and Mayday demonstrations.

    Among the leaders of the PCPJ were David Dellinger (of the Chicago 7) , William Douthard, Robert E. Levering, Bradford Lyttle, Sidney M. Peck, Pat Samuel, Barbara Webster, Cora Weiss, and Ronald J. Young.
