About this session

The US and Australia’s war on Vietnam was a brutal example of imperialism. The images of napalmed children, massacred villages and a people who refused to give in helped to radicalise a generation of students and workers in the 60s and 70s. 

Diane Fieldes, a socialist high school participant in the anti-war movement in 1970 will discuss how the US war machine was defeated.  She’ll take a look at how the national struggle in Vietnam, the anti-war movements in the US & Australia and rebellion in the ranks of US soldiers helped to stop the war.
