On sat. March 11, a 2 day conference was held at the JFK Library next to UMASS, Boston---the conference was on the Vietnam war. Featured speakers were Henry Kissinger(secretary of state under Richard Nixon) and General Alexander Haig(one of Nixon's generals who waged the Vietnam war). About 30 spirited protesters gathered across from the library at 10am , protesting the appearance of these 2 war criminals. Kissinger was responsible for millions of deaths in Vietnam, the overthrow of socialist president Allende in Chile on Sept. 11, 1973, as well as massacres in East Timor. In fact, there are warrants out for Kissinger's arrest in some countries, so Henry K has to be cautious where he travels. General Haig was under Nixon during the Vietnam war in which 4 million S.E. Asians were killed by the U.S.
Protesters shouted anti-Kissinger and anti-war chants over a loud megaphone. Library security attempted to get protesters to move further away, but security was unsuccessful in their attempt.
One protester even showed up in a Nixon mask and was quite convincing as the infamous Watergate crook.
The Boston Stop the Wars Coalition as well as the International Socialist Organization were some of the organizers of the protest, and Food Not Bombs provided bread and muffins.
