Vietnam

  1. 1. Vietnam war memorial
  2. 2. At the end of the 1960s, many Americans were sick and ashamed of the killing and destruction in Vietnam. Daily TV- broadcasts of bombing, horror and suffering reinforced pacifists in the the idea that the war was wrong. They participated in almost daily protest marches in Washington, DC and sit-ins on campuses where male students were facing the draft*. (*conscription obligatoire) m313
  3. 3. After a while, demonstrations were banned in Ohio. Yet a thousand students defied the ban and demonstrated at Kent State University. Soldiers fired, killing 4 students and wounding* another ten. In 1969, Richard Nixon was elected as president. Finally, the last American soldiers left Vietnam in 1973. *(blessant)
  4. 4. It is estimated that out of the 3 million Americans who served in Vietnam, 57,929 died in the war, 25% developed cancer due to Agent Orange and 25% suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. It is believed that 2,500 veterans still live in the woods to hide from society. Two films denouncing the horror of the war
  5. 5. Flower Power Movement
  6. 6. Committed singers took a stand against the war* : John Lennon Yoko Ono * (des chanteurs engagés prirent position contre la guerre)
