安妮·麦克格鲁·贝内特在征兵办公室外
董事会1-4在纽约市,1970年

“民用服从” 1970年的一天

我,安妮M.班尼特,常驻纽约市,现年66岁,被捕,被控“行为不检”。 There were some 181 other adults so charged and 15 minors released without charge. How do such things come to happen? What do they mean?

7:30之前有点那个早晨几百纽约去了瓦里克街建设住房委员会草案1-4,N.Y.C.的办公室 I did not go to be arrested. I went to engage in substantive "dialogue" with persons employed by the federal government in the draft board offices. This was part of the Anti-Draft Week's national program of groups opposing the war in Vietnam.

当我们到了瓦里克街建设有在建筑和许多警察的前警察路障。 This did not surprise me. The anti-draft action had been well publicized. Even the sign on the door "closed to the public" was not too surprising for the news media had carried reports the night before of California Draft Boards closed and there were rumors that all Boards would be closed. However, I am a citizen and so, under the First Amendment I feel that I had a civil right t o seek an audience in the local office of the Federal Selective Service both to get information concerning the work of the draft board and to "petition for redress of grievance." I always expect my government to respect and honor, not only the rights, but the obligations of citizens to participate fully as responsible members of the Republic.

纽约市警察无法回答我们关于征兵委员会办公室是否完全关闭或是否对雇员开放但对我们关闭的问题,即:,公众。警官同意,在一名警察的陪同下,从500名左右和平而有秩序地进行抗议的人中,允许一人进入大楼,进入征兵委员会的办公室,看他们是否开门;如果愿意提出要求,每个小组八到十人,可以到办公室与董事会员工谈话。协调小组问我是否会成为那个“人”。我同意了,但要求允许一位美国公民自由联盟的律师和我一起去。警察提出了请求,董事会办公室经理同意了。
