Protests regarding the war in Vietnam took many forms. In the beginning of the war, criticism of President Johnson's policy in Vietnam came from conservative Republicans, like Barry Goldwater, retired military men, and extremists, like some members of the John Birch Society. The gist of the argument was that the president was going too slowly regarding the war and the use of military action. As the war escalated, the country was split into doves and hawks. The doves protested by staging parades and demonstrations against the war. Most major cities saw some kind of marches or demonstrations against the policy of LBJ. On colleges and high school campuses, some teachers and professors held "teach-ins" as a form of protest against the war. There was also religious groups that protested against the war. The most violent demonstration took place on the campus of Kent State University. This site will have links to protests during the Vietnam War.
Too many to count.
Protests/Demonstrations, Draft Card Burning.
They mirrored the US; protests, etc.
US military policy and civilian protests.
The military draft; riots, protests, and demonstrations.
All of them in 1966-1969. The draft of 68 was the largest in US history.
The US doesn't like it, but Vietnam was the first war they lost.
Like the US Civil War in the 1860s the Vietnam War in the 1960s divided America.
Isolationists made little effort in the early (Post Dien Bin Phu) days. It was the anti war protests against the war and the draft that fought against the Vietnam War.
The US Civil War & Vietnam War experienced draft riots. These were physical violent protests against the military draft (conscription).
The American "public" supplied the manpower for the war, thus the "public" protested and rioted (anti-war/anti-draft protests).
Since both the US and Australia drafted men to fight the war; there were protests and draft riots in both countries.
All over the US, but particularly on college campuses (see Kent State).
The "public" was being drafted into military service; which influenced public opinion, which in turn influenced the protests and riots against the war.
A complete counter-culture of hippies and "flower power" developed as the war became more and more unpopular and anti-war protests began.
Because the Vietnam war was fought between Vietnam and the US
The Vietnam war was a war fought to help unify Vietnam and stop communism. Americans had differing views on the war. Some opposed and some were for it. In the beginning there were few protests. As time went on and more US soldiers were sent home in body bags more Americans began protesting.
The US was at war with North Vietnam (informally-not with documents signed/declaration of war).
Australia mirrored the US; the draft, riots, protests, casualties, discontent.
We were at war with Vietnam because they disagreed with us about something.
US Citizens facing the military draft.
The US joined the Vietnam War in 1960 or 1955because there was a civil war between North Vietnam and South Vietnam, and the US was good friends with South Vietnam's goverment, so they helped out.
Most people in the US NEVER HEARD OF VIETNAM before the war.
With North Vietnam (not Vietnam; Vietnam was created after the war). No, the US did not win the war.
The media ended up having a tremendous effect on the Vietnam War. This was the first war in history that people were able to follow on television. The stories on the nightly news fueled resistance to the draft and the war as a whole, leading to large protests to end US involvement.
