The day of the biggest protest against the Vietnam War – level 1


1969 isn’t a good year for the USA. Coffins with dead Americans are coming from Vietnam. Americans are dying there in a war.

People don’t like the war. People demonstrate. They want to stop the war.

On November 15, 1969, half a million people meet in Washington D.C., USA. People go through the streets. They want one thing. They want to end the war.

There are demonstrations in other American cities, too. 2 million people demonstrate on that day.

The protests are strong. But the war continues for three more years. Then the Americans leave Vietnam.

Difficult words: coffin (a long box for a dead body), demonstrate (to protest), leave (to go away from).

What strategies could have been used to more effectively protest the Vietnam War in the United States?
