(click on an thumbnail to see a larger photograph)

The evening started with a discussion on the creation of a Suffolk County chapter of Veterans for Peace. Following, at about 7:25PM there was an introduction to the movie and, as you can see in the photographs, the theater was packed. At the end of the movie there was a passionate pannel discussion between our three speakers and members of the audience and a reception that went on late into the night.

For those of us who lived through the 60s, David Zeiger's essential film which documents the myriad of anti-war movements during the Vietnam War will evoke distant memories. Memories of the pioneers such as Howard Levy, the dermatologist who refused to train special forces and served 3 years in prison. And Green Beret Donald Duncan who wrote scathing criticism of the war. They made headlines but even those actively involved in the 60s movements were barely aware of the breath of military protests. Through interviews and archival films and photographs, Zeiger presents a dissident gruntsī history of the war. An active underground press emerged. Coffee houses were established near U.S. military bases. Many soldiers attended Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland's FTA tour to hear anti-war songs. Thousands went AWOL. Troops and sailors refused to fight. Veterans organized, most famously in the Winter Soldier movement, to protest the war. As U.S. troops again fight overseas, it's critical that we remember the protests of those who saw Vietnam as an unjust war. Marty Haas
