Synopsis The Boys Who Said NO! a documentary film about an organization of young men and women who opposed conscription in order to end the war in Vietnam. They called themselves the Resistance. Their personal acts of nonviolent civil disobedience eventually helped end the draft and intensified opposition to the war.They were the vanguard of nonviolent resistance to the war and inspired a mass anti-draft movement. While an estimated 500,000 young men resisted, evaded or just refused to cooperate with the draft, 3,250 went to prison for their beliefs, the largest mass incarceration of war resisters in US history. The film takes place during the late 1960s and early 70’s in the San Francisco Bay Area where thousands of young pacifists publicly resisted conscription, risking federal prison. Read more…
