America in Protest: Records of Anti-Vietnam War Organizations - Vietnam Veterans Against the War

Alternative Titles
Archives Unbound
Description

This archive offers 20,117 pages of FBI reports dealing with every aspect of antiwar work carried out by the Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) from 1967-1975. Researchers will also find reports on surveillance of other antiwar groups and individuals, with an emphasis on campus groups like Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and Communist organizations.

The archive’s wide range of activist-written position papers supports research in political science, American history and radical studies. In many instances these papers were open letters to the broad antiwar movement, incorporating topics such as sexism and racism in the movement, the struggle for amnesty, and the debate on pacifism as a strategic tactic. The anti-imperialism  controversy, an ever-present debate in the movement, pervades numerous position papers.

This archive contains numerous reports, newsletters and position papers, as well as an FBI overview on the leading antiwar organizations during the Vietnam War era and surveillance of national and steering committee meetings where decisions and elections took place. America in Protest also includes legal cases revolving around constitutional rights, wiretapping and civil rights. Plaintiffs included students, veterans and activists who sued on the grounds that their civil liberties were infringed upon.
