Harry van Moorst: Opposition to the Vietnam War

The Vietnam War is one of the one of the most well-known conflicts in Australian history. Participation in or protest against the Vietnam War was a defining act for many Australians of the generation, and these have shaped many understandings of war, peace and protest for the generations since.

This exhibition gives a personal reflection by Harry van Moorst, as a student activist, on the struggles for peace during the Vietnam War in the form of the Moratorium and the draft resistance movements.
