Four American peace activists with Medical Aid for Indochina visited North Vietnam to survey damage, injuries, and civilian deaths caused by United States bombing campaigns ordered by President Nixon, whose May 8, 1972, speech announcing the bombings is heard at the beginning of the film. Though novice filmmakers, the group used an 8 mm color film camera and sound recording equipment to document their May 20-25, 1972, trip. The film includes graphic scenes of bomb injuries to children, and a meeting with eight captured American pilots who had recently sent a letter to the U.S. Congress protesting the continued bombing, which they believed put their lives in danger, killed and injured civilians, and only served to prolong the war. The film is from the Swarthmore College Peace Collections. close
