Manifesto of the No-Conscription League

Manifesto of the No-Conscription League

This manifesto, detailing the program of the No-Conscription League founded by Goldman and Berkman in 1917, was circulated to over 100,000 people. Soon thereafter, Goldman and Berkman were arrested and charged with conspiracy to obstruct the draft. The manifesto was used as an exhibit for the government at the subsequent trial.
