KPIX-TV news footage from 1966 featuring scenes from a press conference with Joan Baez, who makes the point that she is refusing to actively volunteer her taxes to the Federal government, as a form of protest against the Vietnam War. She states: "I feel armaments are not only immoral and stupid but impractical" and questions whether what she's doing could rightly be described as "unpatriotic." Note that Baez is sat next to Ira Sandperl during this press conference. Ends with silent views of the press conference and various TV camera set-ups. Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.
