Description
An anti-war message from Night Raiders calling for respect for Vietnam's independence as a nation as well as urging Americans to organize. " Organize! Respect the unity and independence of Vietnam -- Stop the bombing -- Make Love Not War!" "The slogan, 'Make Love, Not War' became a prominent anti-war phrase in the 1960’s that was created by those against America’s involvement in the Vietnam War. It was not just hippies and college students who yelled this phrase throughout the streets but it was also a lot of average American ANTI-WAR PEACE RALLY families and interestingly some Vietnam Veterans themselves" -- Stockton University blog, https://blogs.stockton.edu/hippiemovement/make-love-not-war/. Night Raiders is a group of U.S. political stickers from the '60s and ‘70s protesting the Vietnam War and U.S. imperialism, and calling for racial equality among blacks and whites. "Night Raiders" here may refer to military "night riders" and civilian vigilante "Knight Riders" of the Ku Klux Klan, as well as "freedom riders" during the U.S. civil rights era.

Notes
From a collection of ca. 1960s-‘70s gummed labels and stickers protesting the war in Vietnam and U.S. imperialism, and calling for racial equality among blacks and whites. Quoting several well-known political, military, and religious figures of the day (including Gen. M. B. Ridgeway; Senator Wayne Morse; Senator Frank Church; Senator George McGovern; Gen. Douglas MacArthur; U. Thant; Martin Luther King, Jr.; and President John C. Bennett, Union Theological Seminary, NY, the gummed labels and stickers came in a large envelope from PEACE PRODUCTS, J. S. Kennard, Jr. (Kendall Park, NJ) and addressed to Mr. James T. Wicke, Acting Secy., Human Relations Confrontation (Wasau, WI). Some of the stickers state, "Be a ‘night raider.' Use FAN-SHAN stickers"
