Opposition to United States involvement in the Vietnam War is significant because it was the first time a war was shown and accessed through the media to the public in the United States. Public support for the war decreased as the war waged on throughout the sixties and beginning part of the 1970s. The reasons behind American opposition to the Vietnam War fall into the following main categories: opposition to the draft; moral, legal, and pragmatic arguments against U.S. intervention; reaction to the media portrayal of the devastation in South Asia. Protests against the Vietnam War took place in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
This poster is usually printed with a thin white edge border.
