Peace Marches And Protesters

The sixties were an age of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. It was also a time when the younger generation was fed up with being used as canon fodder in a sensless unwinnable war in Southeast Asia.

Meanwhile the leaders of both sides were in a race to produce the biggest baddest bomb ever. Underground nuclear testing had replaced tests in the atmosphere but people still didn't like it. Protests and peace marches took place around the planet. This was photographed in the Boston Commons in the early sixties.
