Keeping one's head!

Moratorium Day in September, 1970. With increasing media coverage from the war front and increasing civil disobedience regarding the 'Draft' to conscript Australian men public opinion had swung against Australia's involvement in the Vietnam War. The Labor Party had also swung towards the anti-Vietnam War movement aims. Protests around the country were many.
