MayDay 1971- Not your everyday demonstration in Washington DC, under the slogan "If the government won't stop the war, we'll stop the government" the 'MayDay Tribe
 planned mass civil disobedience to tie up traffic and prevent government workers from getting to their jobs. The result, 7,000 arrests- the largest single mass arrest in US history. In the chaos, most of those arrested never had their names taken. (See NY Times front page story). Christine (aka Iris) and Alan hitch hiked to NYC, where they met up with Adam, and went down to DC for the events. They came back a couple. A true Plastic Roseland romance!.
