"Government Critic to Speak Here"



DESCRIPTION
Newspaper clipping from February 1971 announcing an upcoming lecture by Eqbal Ahmad, one of six anti-war activists indicted on charges of conspiring to kidnap Presidential adviser Henry Kissinger and blow up heating systems in federal buildings. In response to the charges against Ahmad, Dr. Douglas Archibald, head of the Cornell Berrigan-Ahmad Defense Committee, says, “Ahmad has made as persuasive a case as anyone that random violence in America is revolutionary suicide. He has been consistently critical of radical sentimentality and romanticism.”
