45 Years Without Justice

The Kent State Tragedy is Still Unresolved

What Actually Happened?

On May 4th, 1970, Kent State students protested against President Nixon's sending of U.S. troops into Cambodia. Earlier in the year, Nixon claimed he would stop sending troops to fight in the Vietnam War. The students disapproved of Nixon's act and spoke against the unnecessary war.

During the protests, the students peacefully spoke out and did not injure anybody. However, the Ohio National Guard stood from a distance, fired their deadly weapons, and killed and injured nearly 20 students that day.

How Can I Make a Difference?

Read this flyer! Study the facts, understand the injustice that occurred that day, and speak against this tragedy.

Justice is yet to be had for those killed and injured that day, so when more young people become educated about the obscene tragedy of May 4th, the injustice is closer to being solved.

The government must be held accountable for what occurred at Kent State, so by learning about this issue, young people can stand up and demand justice for that day.
