The Boys Who Said NO!

The Boys Who Said NO!



Trailer for “The Boys Who Said NO.”  3:04 min.


As the war in VIETNAM raged, one of the largest and most successful youth-led resistance movements in American history was growing at home.

Hundreds of thousands of young men opposed to an unjust war said NO to being drafted into the military, risking up to five years in federal prison. Their individual courage and collective nonviolent actions helped end a tragic war and the draft.

Directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker JUDITH EHRLICH, and featuring draft resistance leader DAVID HARRIS,  The Boys Who Said NO! tells for the first time the inspiring story and impact of the draft resistance movement.

Below are links to video interviews with four people who made The Boys Who Said NO! such a terrific film.
