Stop The Draft Week, Oakland, 1967, Jeff Blankfort 

“It’s very frustrating. I’ve become very disillusioned with the American political situation. Taking photographs of someone having his head broken in by a police club? I’ve taken that so many times that I’m sick and tired of it. I mean you never become immune to the point of accepting it, but you become almost brutalised to the fact that you can stand by taking pictures quite calmly without your hands shaking while someone is having their head broken in by a police club. And you don’t go and stop that policeman from doing it.”
