This is a recording of veterans' rights attorney Barbara Gedanke attacking Carter's proposed draft at an ACLU meeting in April 1980. Her speech covers the phony issue of drafting women, need for a manpower pool in U.S. policy, Vietnam, horrors of Agent Orange (Paraquat) on our troops, the significant difference between the 1980s and the 1960s, the proposed draft's relationship to racism and joblessness, and how the draft will work. There is some background noise and the speech needs an intro and an outro. Produced by Sylvia Jones and Roy Tuckman. April 1980, KPFK.
