This is Cathy and she handmade her Youth International Party flag in 1971. From Wikipedia: An offshoot of the free speech and anti-war movements of the 1960s, the Yippies presented a more radically youth-oriented and countercultural alternative to those movements. They employed theatrical gestures—such as advancing a pig ("Pigasus the Immortal") as a candidate for President in 1968—to mock the social status quo.
When I came across this group they were playing "This Little Light of Mine" to the cheers of the surrounding marchers.
Drums, sage and song
At the end of the march about 20 activists dressed in all black gathered at the rear of the Civic Center. The police closely followed the group and maintained blocks of officers nearby. Some youth break dancers decided to put on a show for one block of police. One dancer tried to introduce himself to the officers -they didn't accept his outstretched hand.
