Celebrate the victory of our GI brothers, the Ft. Jackson 8 [handbill]

San Francisco: GI-CLDC [GI Civil Liberties Defense Committee], [1969]. 8.5x11 inch leaflet with cartoon depicting a GI as a boxer who has bludgeoned a goliath wearing an officer's cap; he asks "Had enough"? Foxing around edges, darker on the blank reverse.

The Fort Jackson Eight were members of GIs United Against the War in Vietnam, credited on the leaflet with having "backed the army brass down from their frame-up court-martial charges." The group started as a Black and Puerto Rican club for listening to Malcolm X tapes, then opened to white members and included Young Socialist Alliance activists. Aside from a panel of GIs, the event was to feature Dr. Carlton Goodlett and attorney Edward Keating, founder of Ramparts Magazine.
