SCHEDULE OF ACTIVITIES DURING CATONSVILLE 9 TRIAL WEEK
Note: All activities will emphasize that :
1 the Catonsville Nine will have our complete support for their action in
the hope that such actions will become commonplace and that the draft
system will be destroyed. We salute likewise the men who destroyed many
records yesterday in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
2 people have the right and duty, if necessary, to dissent, to demonstrate,
to resist and to revolt;
3 "Agnew Country" is not as placid as Mr. Agnew would like to believe. His
recent campaign statements concerning "subversives", "academic freedom
and dissent, as well as his vendetta against H. Rap Brown and his relations
with the black community in general, will be vigorously challenged;
4 Local draft board members in Baltimore, hitherto virtually anonomous,
must be regarded as public officials, subject to exposure and censure for
their collusion with Selective Service.
