“more than 10,000 greater boston and new england college students and teachers are expected to attend the boston version of a 40 city, nation-wide, anti-vietnam war rally on monday oct. 16
expected to be the largest anti-war demonstration in the city’s history, the protest will include a mass rally on boston common and a march to the arlington street church for a “service of a conscience and acceptance” at which several hundred students are expected to “turn in their draft cards”
the latest in a series of anti-war protests from the nation’s college campuses, the program was announced here wednesday by a quartet of students.
careful to explain that they are not the leaders of the “resistance” in the boston area— this is a volunteer movement and by our very nature we cannot have leaders” were: michael k ferber, 23, of buffalo, n.y., william cowling, 23, of warner, n.h.; neil robertson, 23, paramus, n.j., and alex jack, 22, of boston.

“we dont want a safe place in the system”, Ferber stressed. “we want to plug up the cannon-fodder system which supplies men to be killed in Vietnam.”
the group noted that students turning in their draft cards, to b e forwarded on oct 20 to selective service headquarters at washington, will be eligible for arrest, fine and possible imprisonment for five-year terms.”
