Description
Raw news material includes narration by CBS's Chris Borgin and video clips of the April 15, 1967 Peace March in New York City. The march included 300,000 protestors led by Martin Luther King Jr. and Dr. Benjamin Spock to demonstrate against the United States and United Nations' involvement in the Vietnam War. Organized by the National Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam (MOBE), a coalition against the Vietnam War, the protest occurred alongside a simultaneous protest of 75,000 in San Francisco and raised national awareness of anti-war sentiment. This footage includes scenes of protesters carrying signs reading "Vietnam Veterans Against the War" and "Children are Not For Burning" alongside clips of counter-protesters.
