Massachusetts Peace Action ~ Middle East Working Group
A teach-in on the history of the Vietnam War, with a focus on resistance, was held on March 28, 2015 at MIT. The program was organized by United for Justice with Peace, the eastern Massachusetts coalition formed after 9/11 and hosted by MIT's Technology and Culture Forum.
Veterans For Peace put out a national call for programs to accurately reflect the events of the period in response to a major Pentagon effort to officially rewrite history and sanitize that war as a propaganda campaign to justify current wars.
This year is a commemorative year, the 50th anniversary of the first antiwar teach-in at the University of Michigan and the 40th anniversary of the end of the war in 1975.
Doug Rawlings, one of the six co-founders of Veterans For Peace started the day with a moving poem, Walking the Wall: “if your nightmares wait for the night, you are a survivor.”
