Background
The Graduate Theological Union Strike Bulletin was published during the period of intense protest against the Vietnam War in May 1970. The student strike 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.
