The photograph of a student strike at Colby College in Waterville is from the Echo, Spring 1970, and was taken by Mike Harvey '72.

The National Student Association declared a student strike across the nation when President Nixon sent U.S. troops into Cambodia in 1970, escalating the war in Southeast Asia.

A few days after student protesters at Kent State were fired upon and killed, Colby students staged a nonviolent protest, marching from the campus to the Waterville Post Office and joined the nationwide student strike.
