When I get time, I will add more photo and stories.
For now, here is a photo that William Blum wanted an anti-war photo for his latest book West-Block Dissident: A Cold War memoir, Soft Skull Press 2002.
I remembered a rather dramatic and radical one from "In The Teeth Of War," a "PHOTOGRAPHIC DOCUMENTARY OF THE MARCH 26th, 1966, NEW YORK CITY DEMONSTRATION AGAINST THE WAR IN VIETNAM, published by The Fifth Avenue Vietnam Peace Parade Committee. Here is the photo by Robert Parent (deceased) from page 38:

Other photos had the usual collection of Doves, children, heartfelt signs and some of the full of hate pro-war hecklers.
Here's another that shows one of the many side streets that would feed into the larger demonstration. Remember, this was 1966 and contrary to the pro-war propagandists today who argue that the peaceniks spat on the veterans, check out the signs in these photos of the typical collection of Bring the Boys home, etc. Almost no one was against the draftees or even the GI volunteers. We understood that it was some of the political and military leaders who were to blame. From the beginning of the war, the peace movement seriously organized for and among the GI's. Many of the earliest and most determined anti-war organizers were veterans who had been through enough to see through the latest propaganda. (If you have DSL, click here for a larger version)

RIGHTS IN CONCORD, The Response to the Counter-Inaugural Protest Activities in Washington, D.C., January 18-20, 1969
This was a "Staff Report" of the Task Force on Law and Law Enforcement to the National Commission on the Causes and Prevention of Violence. This grand title was actually a lie and immensely hypocritical. During the height of the US war on Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, the White House had established this "National Commission" which actually, as an historical reading of this report will show, looked into how to cover up US military violence in Indochina and make excuses for police violence at home. I will add some information about this report in the coming days, but you can just consider what happened as a result of "the war at home." Cointelpro assassinations and instigation of violence. Infiltration and instigation of violent acts by mostly peaceful demonstrators. Massive and illegal arrests such as the thousands at the May Day Demonstrations in 1971. The list is long and continues to today.
[This report was compiled about 43 years ago and published in "Nay 22, 1969." Yes a small typo, but a report that was intentionally fraudulent, designed to blame the demonstrators and make the White House commission look good. Now in 2012, they are still doing the same, just with much more sophisticated tools. Beware the propaganda.
I will post a PDF of this report here, and an album of the photos with comments here.

PsyOps Study of NLF leaflets This is an odd one, but distinguishes between real and fake leaflets. It would be interesting to psychologically and politically analyze this site.
Here are some more videos from TV news at that time. While mostly pro-war and never objective or presenting an in depth or analytical coverage from the anti-war point of view, watching these videos so many years later, the essense still comes throgh.
