Milwaukee Fourteen

The Milwaukee Fourteen were fourteen peace activists who burned Selective Service records to protest the Vietnam War. On 24 September 1968, they entered Milwaukee's Brumder Building, site of nine Wisconsin draft boards, gathered up about 10,000 files, carried them to an open public space, set them on fire with homemade napalm; the fourteen remained at the site and reading from the gospels of John and Luke as Milwaukee firemen and police officers arrived. The subsequent trial of twelve of the protestors became the first resistance trial in which the defendants chose to represent themselves. After a trial of eleven days, the defendants were each found guilty of theft and burglary.

In February 1966 Barry Bondhus destroyed draft files in Elk River, Minnesota by pouring human excrement over them.

In October 1967 four men poured blood on draft records at the Baltimore City Custom House. On 17 May 1968 nine protestors burned draft records in Catonsville, MD; the Milwaukee group was inspired by the action in Catonsville and "timed their action to draw attention to the upcoming trial of the Catonsville Nine." Jim Forest and Daniel Berrigan traveled to Milwaukee where they met with Michael Cullen and others at Casa Maria, a Catholic Worker house of hospitality. According to Forest, "On our second night at Casa Maria, Dan and I found ourselves drinking beer in a crowded kitchen in which several of those present, Michael among them, made clear they were eager to follow the Catonsville example."In August 1968 a retreat was held at a Catholic monastery in New Jersey to consider who of those present might participate in another draft board action—and when it would take place. Forest describes it: The gathering was shaped liked a retreat, with Mass each morning and a period of Bible study in the day.

In addition there were sessions at which we got to know each other, discuss our motives and backgrounds, to make decisions about who would take part in the action, who would form a support team, which of several cities being considered should be chosen. Forest explained the decision to act in Milwaukee, There were several cities that were being considered and two or three people appointed to see what the possibilities might be; when we met to hear the reports, it was clear. The group agreed to come together in Milwaukee on September 22; the night before the event, the Milwaukee 14 gathered together and determined their roles for the burglary portion of the action. The afternoon of the event, the men walked side by side to the building that housed the nine different draft boards, with burlap bags to collect the 1-A draft files. Shortly before 6:00 on Tuesday evening, 24 September 1968, the group entered the second floor offices where the draft boards were located in Milwaukee's Brumder Building.

They encountered a cleaning woman from. At the trial she would describe their manner towards her as "very respectful." Files classified as 1-A and "other files that were in a drawer marked ‘Delinquent’ — people who were in trouble with the Selective Service System"— were gathered and carried out of the building and across W. Wells Street to a grassy area and piled at the foot of a flagpole dedicated to dead WWI soldiers. A car drove up from; the group understood the importance of public attention to and awareness of their action. Through the Milwaukee Organizing Committee, an anti-war and anti-draft group, they had contacted the local media and, safeguarding the details of the action, led them by an indirect route to the site; the deed done, the Fourteen gathered together in a supportive embrace and waited to be arrested, singing the Lord's Prayer and reading scripture as fire trucks wailed in the distance. As the records continued to burn, a few pedestrians stopped to observe. Others kept on walking.
