Pacifica Radio/KPFA/UC Berkeley Library: Other Social Activist Movements & Activities Social Activism Sound Recording Project: Martin Luther Kind, "Why I Am Opposed to the War in Vietnam ," April 30, 1967, Riverside Church, New York. The sermon which I am preaching this morning in a sense is not the usual kind of sermon, but it is a sermon and an important subject, nevertheless, because the issue that I will be discussing today is one of the most controversial issues confronting our nation.

I'm using as a subject from which to preach, "Why I Am Opposed to the War in Vietnam. " Now, let me make it clear in the beginning, that I see this war as an unjust, evil, and futile war. ‎jaclynburr.weebly.com/uploads/1/8/7/0/18702776/lesson_plan_-_vietnam_songs.pdf. ‎www.eastconn.org/tah/1112MM2_MyLaiMassacreRoundRobinLesson.pdf. ‎www.museumca.org/wgolessons/pdf/lesson2/OMCA_WGO_lesson2_ABOUT-TET-OFFENSIVE.pdf. ‎hooversocialscience.wikispaces.com/file/view/The+TET+Offensive.PDF. ‎faculty.summitps.org/attachments/article/36/Gulf%20of%20Tonkin%20Resolution%20Lesson%20Plan.pdf. 02.03.05: Debating the Future of Indochina in 1945: Making Your Case.

02.03.05: Debating the Future of Indochina in 1945: Making Your Case

A strong argument not only provides rationale for supporting one side of an issue, but also recognizes and addresses opposing points of view. Many students struggle to form convincing arguments because they are unused to looking at topics from different angles. As students enter adolescence, they begin to form strong independent opinions; it is an opportune time to begin building effective persuasive skills.

Students in French classes are generally unaware of the role that France played in world events of the 19th and 20th centuries. French Indochina (now Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam) is an ideal region to focus on because several of my students are first- or second-generation Laotian immigrants. Academic Setting This unit was developed with a 7th- or 8th-grade French class in mind, but its topics and strategies are easily applicable to higher grade levels. Unit background.

American Experience

Senate Committee on Foreign Relations April 23, 1971 I would like to talk on behalf of all those veterans and say that several months ago in Detroit we had an investigation at which over 150 honorably discharged, and many very highly decorated, veterans testified to war crimes committed in Southeast Asia. These were not isolated incidents but crimes committed on a day-to-day basis with the full awareness of officers at all levels of command. It is impossible to describe to you exactly what did happen in Detroit -- the emotions in the room and the feelings of the men who were reliving their experiences in Vietnam. We call this investigation the Winter Soldier Investigation. We who have come here to Washington have come here because we feel we have to be winter soldiers now. In our opinion and from our experience, there is nothing in South Vietnam which could happen that realistically threatens the United States of America.

The role of the military in our society historically and contemporarily is to protect our nations territory, protect our freedom as citizens, and provide an example of strength in the international community. Consequently, we have a long history of both anti-war and anti-draft activity both in colonial America and in the U.S. Timeline of Anti-War and Anti-Draft Activity and Government Response First Era, 1607-1783: Colonial, then state, militias – volunteer and conscripted – served short-term military needs at the national level.

DBQ on Vietnam

Yesterday I witnessed something that would make any American realize why we are in this war. At least it did me. I was on daylight patrol. We were on a hill overlooking a bridge that was out of our sector. I saw a platoon of Vietcong stopping traffic from going over the bridge.

Battlefield:Vietnam

Drawn up in the shadow of the Korean War, the Geneva Accords represented the worst of all possible futures for war-torn Vietnam. Because of outside pressures brought to bear by the Soviet Union and the People's Republic of China, Vietnam's delegates to the Geneva Conference agreed to the temporary partition of their nation at the seventeenth parallel to allow France a face-saving defeat. The Communist superpowers feared that a provocative peace would anger the United States and its western European allies, and neither Moscow or Peking wanted to risk another confrontation with the West so soon after the Korean War.
