Anti War Demonstrations

Compared to the demonstrations against the Iraq & Afghanistan War, there was more engagement in the late Sixties when hundreds of thousands of people demonstrated against the war in Vietnam.
Some experts say that demonstrations have little or no lasting impact (William R. Berkowitz).
Usually public support decreases as a war wages on. Ten years after the start of the Vietnam War (this was in 1959) half a million people participated in an anti war demonstration (1969) in Washington.


In 2007 tens of thousands protested against the Iraq war in Washington.

The Peace Moratorium is believed to have been the largest demonstration in US history with an estimated two million people involved.
