Seizure of Yippie's Disney Merch


Press release published in conjunction with the seizure of 300 Mickey Mouse tee shirts by United Sates forces near Danang, Vietnam, on Friday, September 20, 1968. The tee shirts were intended to be handed out to citizens of Vietnam on the 67th anniversary of Walt Disney's birth as a gesture of solidarity. This would have been the "Yippies first venture into foreign commerce since becoming spiritually independent of the U.S. and [they] thought Disney's birthday would be the most appropriate day to kick-off their international relations."

Condition:  Very Good. Folded in four, light edge wear.
