Vote now on Vietnam

...with the Voters Pledge


Fifth Estate # 7, April 1966

The Vietnam war is exacting a cruel toll in lives and resources, detracting from constructive domestic programs, and threatening to lead to a third world war.

I PLEDGE to support and vote for candidates in 1966 who agree to work vigorously:

FOR U.S. steps to scale down the fighting to achieve a cease fire;

FOR U.S. initiatives to encourage negotiations with all concerned parties including the Vietcong (NLF); and

FOR a settlement which permits the Vietnamese people freely to work out their own future;

FOR the use of international agencies to settle disputes among nations; and

FOR the avoidance of military intervention in the affairs of other nations;

FOR the increasing use of our resources in constructive economic and social programs at home and abroad.
