The student strike of May 1970 was a "unified action by
the Graduate Theological Union against United States
involvement in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. The most recent
escalation of the war and the response of students and
other groups across the nation, including the shooting of
students in Kent, Ohio, were catalysts for actions by
groups within the GTU." Through the course of the strike,
several committees (church contacts, military action,
political action, etc.) were set up to address various
issues such as protests against the war, draft resistance,
product boycotts, racism, farm workers, and church
renewal. Out of this grew a movement to "reconstitute our
energies as an educational community" and present "an anti-war, Third World GTU counter curriculum" with guidelines
for experimental programs.
