Sixties-era peace activists who traveled to Hanoi during the Viet Nam war will report on their recent return to Vietnam on the 40th anniversary of the Paris Peace Agreement. They will reflect on their experience then, Vietnam today and the impact of the war on their lives and on the Vietnamese people.

Speakers:
Judy Gumbo Albert was an original member of the Yippies in Chicago, 1968.  In 1970, Judy met with representatives of North Vietnam in Montreal, Stockholm, Paris and Cuba, and visited North Vietnam as part of a Yippie women’s delegation.

Mary Anne Barnett dropped out of law school when the US invaded Cambodia in 1970.  She ended up becoming involved in bringing union rights for herself and her coworkers in a non union electronics plant and has focused her work on union activism since that time.

Frank Joyce was active in the People’s Peace Treaty, the Indo China Peace campaign and traveled to Hanoi in the spring of 1970. He served for twelve years as the communications director for the United Auto Workers Union and is an award winning journalist in print, radio and television.
