There never was a good war or a bad peace. ~Ben Franklin

200,000 at Washington Peace march (April 1971 John Kerry speaks and John Denver sings)

Huge protest against the Vietnam war

Vintage archival footage, from tv news coverage, with Hal Simms as tv news anchor or announcer, and Bob Schieffer reporting: The 1971 anti-war demonstration in Washington D.C. had between 200,000 and 500,000 peaceful demonstrators. It was very mainstream. Burns instead skewed his coverage in the tv series (episode 10) to emphasize the "May Day Tribe" and its willingness to destroy property.

Good speech from John Kerry, as a young man and member of Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW). Kerry's open-air speech was not covered in the Burns series, although Kerry's anti-war testimony to Congress features prominently in the documentary.

Tax Dollars Spent on Military versus Peace Tax Initiative

Taxpayers can take stock of how the federal government spent their 2007 income tax dollars: over 42 percent went towards military spending, while education received just over 4 percent. The National Priorities Project shows how the average Tulsan family is diverting $360 of their 2007 income tax dollars to buy military hardware, military services, military advertising, military recruiters, and to pay down war debt accumulated by the military during past wars. The campaign for a Peace Tax in lieu of War Taxes is a nationwide campaign.
