The Weathermen stated it was in celebration of Ho Chi Minh’s birthday (a North Vietnamese communist revolutionary). On January 29, 1975 the Weathermen set off a bomb in the Department of State’s building. The bombing was in protest of America’s support for South Vietnam and Cambodia. On the same day another bomb was set to go off in a federal building in Oakland, California.
