The Vietnam War: "40 Years Later"
Friday, May 15, 7:00 - 8:45 pm
Bethlehem Public Library
451 Delaware Ave., Delmar
marks the 40th Year Anniversary of the End of the Vietnam War.
Historian Larry Wittner and Veteran for Peace Dan Wilcox will be the
speakers at this event. Larry Wittner will be in Vietnam in
April, as a member of a delegation from the Vietnam Peace
Commemoration Committee, a group of leading peace activists who worked
to stop the Vietnam War in the 1960's. This forum will be an
opportunity for Larry to discuss his trip to Vietnam and reflect on war and its aftermath. May 1-2, Dan Wilcox will be attending a
Conference in Washington DC titled, "Vietnam: The Power of Protest". Dan will discuss
the conference and also speak about his experiences as a soldier and an
antiwar activist during the Vietnam War.
an excerpt from a petition that 1,000 + historians sent to the US
government’s 50th anniversary commemoration program: Your official
commemoration should be an opportunity to hear, recognize and perhaps
reconcile or heal the lasting wounds of that era. If the US government
cannot provide a bridge for crossing that Vietnam divide, how can we
urge reconciliation in other parts of the world where sectarian
tensions are on the rise? We believe, as did such a huge proportion of
the US population decades ago, that the Vietnam War was a mistake. No
commemoration of the war can ignore that view. How else can we as a
nation hope to learn the lessons of Vietnam, to avoid repeating that
mistake over and over again? See more at:
