A guide to forming antiwar organizations

Organizing a Vietnam Protest Committee


The antiwar movement was especially strong on college and university campuses across the United States, including the campuses of the University of Wisconsin. At UW-Madison, a small group of students who first began meeting to protest the initial bombings in Vietnam formed a permanent Committee to End the War in Vietnam (CEVN). Seeking to expand its reach beyond students, CEVN established the National Co-ordinating Committee to End the War in Vietnam and printed this booklet to help other antiwar groups organize.
