North American Nonsense

STORY BY: Anne Schmitz
YEAR: 1970
LOCATION: Kent State University, OH

Anne was wandering around the United States and talked to some people at Kent State who were planning a demonstration. When she got home to Syracuse, NY, she got the news about what happened to those people (4 college students were shot by the Ohio National Guard while protesting, or merely observing, the Cambodian Campaign.) A few months later, Anne moved to Canada to get away from "this nonsense", just in time for the War Measures Act. Thanks for sharing, Anne.
