It began as an anti draft movement among the hippies and the

flower children. As the US casualties mounted it became more and

more widespread and began to appear on the evening news along with

reports of Buddhist monks setting themselves aflame, young napalmed

girls and an every increasing number of flag draped caskets

returnin to the States. The draft resisters, evaders and dodgers

increased in numbers as did the number of draft card burnings. The

larger and more vocal the protests became, the more the government

leaked about Laos and Cambodia. Suport of the Vietnam War collapsed

and then ended.
