Today in 1967: In Washington, D.C., more than 100,000 demonstrators surround the reflecting pool between the Washington and Lincoln monuments in a largely peaceful protest to end the Vietnam War. Some encircled and attempted to storm the Pentagon in what some considered to be civil disobedience; 682 were arrested and dozens injured.
This protest was paralleled by demonstrations in Japan and Western Europe, the most violent of which occurred outside the U.S. Embassy in London where 3,000 demonstrators attempted to storm the building.
