New Documents at www.socialisthistory.ca

Our section on the anti-Vietnam-war movement in Canada has been very 
positively received by activists in today's antiwar movement. There 
are many parallels between the two movements, including very similar 
debates about tactics, slogans, and organization. To provide more 
insight into how socialists participated in the antiwar movement in 
the 1960s and 1970s, and how they explained the issues to a broad 
audience, we've added four more documents: 

** HOW REVOLUTIONARY SOCIALISTS OPPOSED THE VIETNAM WAR, a recent 
essay by Ian Angus on the political and tactical debates that shaped 
the antiwar movement in Canada and the U.S. 

** SEVEN YEARS OF STRUGGLE TO END THE WAR, a history of the Canadian 
antiwar movement published in Labor Challenge in 1971. 

** OTTAWA'S COMPLICITY IN VIETNAM, a 1967 pamphlet published by the 
Student Association to End the War in Vietnam, a group in which 
members of the Young Socialists/Ligue des Jeunes Socialistes played 
leadership roles. 

** U.S. AGGRESSION IN VIETNAM & CANADA'S COMPLICITY, a 1969 pamphlet 
published by the Canada Vietnam Newsletter. 

The easiest way to find new material at the Socialist History Project 
is to go to www.socialisthistory.ca and click on "What's New" in the
