The UC (Berkeley) Medical Aid Committee for Vietnam held its first rally at noon this Tuesday on the Berkeley campus in Lower Sproul Plaza.
Speakers at the rally included Dr. Tom Brewer of the American Society to Defend Children; Steve Hamilton, chairman of the Berkeley M2M and a member of the MAC; Paul Ivory, asst. professor, economics, member of the Vietnam Day Committee; Steve Cherkoss, West Coast organizer, and a member of, MAC; and Anatole Anton, cochairman of Stanford MAC.
The aims of the Committee are to raise funds, medical supplies and blood-pledge donors for the victims of U.S. aggression in Vietnam.
The rally was small but enthusiastic. The crowd milled around a sign-up table to pledge blood after the speakers gave out the appeal. During the one hour rally over forty-five people pledged to donate one pint of their blood to the war victims of Vietnam.
Another rally is scheduled for Tuesday, November 16, on Sproul Hall steps at noon.
