Fifth Estate # 67, November 28-December 11, 1968

DETROIT Nov. 14—In a joyous celebration at St. Joseph’s Episcopal Church, eight men returned their draft cards to the Selective Slavery System, including the pastor of the church.

In breaking their ties with the draft the men stated, “Young men are being forced to choose between being free to celebrate their existence and being forced to engage in acts of destruction. We choose freedom, life, and the joy involved in being true to ourselves.”

The men turning in their cards were Fred Chase, Richard Kennedy, Tom Sincavitch, Mike Slaski, Phil Tabbita, Richard Trombley, Stan Vitoz, and Rev. Robert Morrison.
