Summary

As the Vietnam War progressed, opposition to the conflict became progressively more complex. A significant focus for those opposing the war was the Australian government’s alliance with American foreign policy and the US military complex. This hand-printed poster promotes a rally in Treasury Gardens in April 1971.
