Abstract
Footage of a large anti-war demonstration in 1966. People can be seen carrying signs; one person has even covered their dog in anti-war slogans. The Chicago Motor Club Building located at 66 E. South Water street (68 E. Wacker Place),can be seen in the background.
 
Signs include slogans such as “War on poverty not people,” “Build schools not bombs.” There seems to be a brief interview (no audio) with the artist who paints the posters featuring skeletons with the initials “LBJ,” which demonstrators can be seen carrying throughout the film.  The last sequence takes on an even more impressionistic feel, and the filmmaker, Palazzolo, is shown painting anti-war posters.
