Episode Summary

Anti-War Movement
Take a look at the anti-war movement in the wake of new draft laws in the US during the Vietnam War. When fighting for the American forces stopped being a matter of choice, resistance to the draft laws began to rise. By the 1960s this became a significant movement and generated a societal conflict of its own. Forums and advice seminars on ways to avoid the draft took place across the Sates, while those already engaged in battle were interviewed in opposition to the objectors. Witness the accompanying pop culture movement to end the war and the draft law in the form of protest songs and radical publications, as well as the intervention of religious and spiritual figureheads, and how this tied in to the end of the conflict in Vietnam.moreless
