* Vietnam Veterans Against the War

* March on Washington D.C. w/ photos

The front page has a seven photo pictorial with small heading: "The Veterans Go To Washington" (see images) with reporting beginning on page 9 with heading: "The vets & Mayday" with lead-in: "A changing peace movement" and 3 more related photos. Coverage continues on other inside pages.
Page 55 has a full page ad for a Alice Cooper concert in Manhattan.
I suspect this to be an extremely rare item because their was really no reason to save it at the time.
It is worth noting that "The Village Voice" was an American news and culture paper, known for being the country's first alternative newsweekly. Founded in 1955, the Voice began as a platform for the creative community of New York City.
Complete in 104 pages, tabloid-size, a crease across the center, very minor margin wear, nice condition.
