Alice Bron, psychologiet: I share the depression and sense of lethaiv gy about doing demonstrations, but they really have to happen. It's just hard to to give up the fantasy of ing effective. Change is slow. U's hard to do demonstrations with exultaüon, to find the energy to keep it up. I'm down because the fantasy isn't real, but slow change is. Liz Symonds, student: I'd be surprised if the moratorium would be as effective as the one two ycars ago. It would need something stünulating like an sion. People are saying we've marched in the streets and rallied - with litüe effect - so why should we fire up again. I'd like it to be effective. Dave Sargaun, Maoist: The purpose of a march is to desplay ideology. It's like living theater where the actors-marchers teil the audience what they want thcm to know. There are also criücs not favorable to what the playera are doing. These critics are often the factory workers and man-on-the-street who aren 't "educated" to understand. Voice chante only go so f ar. The reasons behlnd them aren 't explained during the march. So much depends upon advertislng about the march's platform. Thunderbolt Yancy Derringer: The march will shake up people but not the one's who should be. Nixon won 't listen, heil probably have a barbe que in his backyard. Moritoriums go througb liberal hands but the people that get drawn in are radical. People gotta get self-determination but they aren 't going to get it by going to some rally. Matt Bass, student: It seems ver y frustrating, I mean it's been eight years. The reason the de-escalaüon is happening is because the war had begun to affect middle Amerika 's pocketbook. They really don 't even care about the effects of war. They're the ones the governxnent is responding to - not the protests.
