  • “Hell no was the battle cry of the largest peace movement in American history—the effort to end the Vietnam War, which included ?thousands of veterans. Download Hell No: The Forgotten Power of the Vietnam Peace Movement The movement was divided among radicals, revolutionaries, sectarians, moderates, and militants, which legions of paid FBI informants and government provocateurs tried to destroy.РїС—Р… Despite these obstacles millions?РїС—Р… marched, resisted the draft on campuses, and forced two sitting presidents from office.РїС—Р… This movement was a watershed in our history, yet today it is in danger of being forgotten, condemned by its critics for everything from cowardice to stab-in-the-back betrayal.

    In this indispensable ?essay, Tom Hayden, a principal anti-Vietnam War organizer, ?calls to account elites who want to forget the Vietnam peace movement and ?excoriates those who trivialize its ?impact, engage in caricature of protestors and question their patriotism. In so doing, he seeks both a reckoning and a healing of national memory.
