Protesting against the Vietnam War, 1968

Joan Donley and her son Patrick protest against the visit of American warships to Auckland in February 1968. Donley was concerned that New Zealand support for the Vietnam War was being purchased with loans from the International Monetary Fund. American interference in Canadian politics had been one of the family’s motivations for emigrating four years earlier.
