Hide Profile

The National Peace Action Coalition was one of the largest anti-Vietnam War movement organizations of that era. With chapters in many U.S. cities, the Coalition planned and conducted a number of major anti-war demonstrations in Washington D.C., San Francisco, and other cities to protest the U.S. conduct of the war in Southeast Asia. Their demand was for immediate, unconditional withdrawal of all U.S. forces from Southeast Asia.
