Item 070: The Cambodia Strike at Carleton College / Susan Fraker, 1970View associated digital content.

Subjects include: Cambodian War; Robert "Rob" Weaver; “silent majority”; Northfield High School students; Cambodia; Indochina; Minneapolis Peace March; Emily Begle; Rickard "Rick" Shumacher; Jillian Mick; Norm Brick; William McIntyre.

Radio news broadcast about activities going on as part of the Strike at Carleton that occurred in Spring 1970 to protest the United States’ involvement in the Cambodian War. Days before the broadcast, 1000 students and faculty had voted to strike for four days. During that time, students were free from academic duties to give them time to attend meetings, talk to residents of Northfield and learn about the war. The main purpose of the strike was to educate students and townspeople about the war and to facilitate discussion about the implications of the United States’ activities in Cambodia.

As part of the strike, student Rob Weaver led a group of students to canvas in Northfield to talk to townspeople about the war and about the strike at Carleton. Rob Weaver talks about the goals and implications of the canvas, which was started to circulate petitions in an effort to mobilize the “silent majority” of people that oppose the war. Jan Loveston and John Kennedy, two students who participated in the canvas, talk about their experiences trying to reach out to Northfield residents, and describe the various reactions of people they talked to. The broadcast quickly covers several events that occurred during the protest, such as the arrival of Northfield High School students at Carleton to learn about Cambodia and Indochina and the Minneapolis Peace March that occurred in the cities. Emily Beagle talks about the daycare set up and run by students so that adults with children could attend the Peace March. Although support for the strike was overwhelming at Carleton, it was far from unanimous. Several students speak briefly about their thoughts about the protest. Rick Shumacher talks about how he voted against it, but after having experienced the strike, is now in support of it. Jillian Mick, a girl from a conservative rural area, talks about her reasons for supporting the strike. Norm Brick, by contrast, gives reasons for his opposition to the campus strike, such as his view that "[it is] a bad sign when closing a college is used as a tactic," saying that the classroom is the best place for the promotion of dissent. William McIntyre, a faculty member at Carleton, gives his opinions on the strike and praises the strike for its consideration of the minority group that opposed it and the many opportunities for political participation at all levels of the community it gives to students who wish to engage in active dissent of the war.
