An anti-war movement (also antiwar) is a social movement, usually in opposition to a particular nation's decision to start or carry on an armed conflict, unconditional of a maybe-existing just cause. The term anti-war can also refer to pacifism, which is the opposition to all use of military force during conflicts, or to anti-war books, paintings, and other works of art. Many activists distinguish between anti-war movements and peace movements.
Soon, other student groups were springing up across the nation with similar demands. Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) formed at the University of Michigan and issued the Port Huron Statement, which criticized US foreign policy and attacked the Cold War assumptions underlying it. "The elimination of the draft and its replacement with an all-volunteer professional army was a major lasting consequence of the antiwar movement. But the draft is still legal? Is it not?
Earlier, the dominant slogan had been, Hey, hey, . how many kids did you kill today? In 1969 it became, One side’s right, one side’s wrong, victory to the Viet Cong. Blacks were in revolt after dozens of urban rebellions. Antiwar candidates ran for office. A blossoming infrastructure gave the antiwar movement radio news outlets, documentary film capability and a syndicated news service. Law firms formed to defend its work, and networks of donors were created. The national networks and experienced organizers of the antiwar movement’s fourth stage joined the coalition and coordinated aggressive lobbying efforts in congressional districts across the country. As each of several congressional appropriations for South Vietnam came up, the coalition successfully whittled it down.
The antiwar movement became more grounded in political analysis than in the starry-eyed assurance of earlier protesters, Anthony DeCurtis tells LIFE. Protests spread, and schools served as major centers of agitation. Some of those opposed to the war raided draft offices. Father Daniel Berrigan and eight other members of the Catholic Church entered the Selective Service office in Catonsville, Maryland, and seized hundreds of draft files. Outside, they doused the cards with their own homemade napalm. A group that became know as the Milwaukee 14 broke into that city’s Selective Service office and took 4,000 class 1-A draft cards, dragging them out in sacks and burning them in a park across the street.
Lyrics for Hey, Hey . Johnson had a button nose, when first he went to congress. Now it's long and crooked like. LBJ tries every way to make our country prosperous, he fights rural poverty with Hey, hey LBJ! How many kids did you kill today? We're gonna take your toys away and bring our soldiers home now. Report a problem.
The antiwar movement actually consisted of a number of independent interests, often only vaguely allied and contesting each other on many issues, united only in opposition to the Vietnam War. Attracting members from college campuses, middle-class suburbs, labor unions, and government institutions, the movement gained national prominence in 1965, peaked in 1968, and remained powerful throughout the duration of the conflict. Hayden cited the uncertainty of life in Cold War America and the degradation of African Americans in the South as examples of the failure of liberal ideology and called for a reevaluation of academic acquiescence in what he claimed was a dangerous conspiracy to maintain a sense of apathy among American youth. Throughout the first years of its existence, SDS focused on domestic concerns.
Hey Jude’, which was recorded between 31 July and 1 August during the White Album sessions, but which was released three months before that album came out, spent nine weeks at No. 1 of the UK charts, the longest time any Beatles single ever stayed in the top spot. Revolution’, the B-side, was recorded in July 1968 as a radical remake of the version of the song which had already been laid down for the White Album. It was completed in mid-July, and Lennon wanted it to be the next Beatles single, but it was held back
