Harvey Richards documentaries on the San Francisco peace movement began with the marches against nuclear testing and then focused on the Vietnam War protests in the 1960’s. Women for Peace (1962) is a film he made in collaboration with his wife, Alice Richards who was a co-founder of the organization. He documented anti-nuclear testing protests in Everyman (1962) which centered on the attempt to sail a boat named Everyman into the nuclear testing zones in the Pacific Ocean. As the Vietnam war escalated from 1965 onward, he produced three films about the anti-Vietnam war movement. He photographed the Berkeley troop train demonstrations in Hot Damn! (1965), the Vietnam Day Committee march from Berkeley to Oakland, the 1967 Stop the Draft demonstrations in Oakland, California to end the military draft system, the great San Francisco Vietnam War protests that helped stop the war in Vietnam in his films Decision in the Streets (1965) and No Greater Cause.
