  • 2. We care about you
    We should care about this movement because it was a time when people protested for the better use of resources and people started questioning politics.
    Peace was a key point in the movement.
    People found a way to protest while still being peaceful.

    The 60’s were a lot different than today.
    Long hair styles were the norm and flowers were the power.
    Protest songs were popular and tie-dye was radical.
    Pot and crack were just a few of the things people did too.
