Australian Public Celebrating the Communist Victories in Indo-China
Most who protested against the Vietnam War were simply against Australia’s involvement in a conflict increasingly seen as immoral and unwinnable, others opposed the use of national servicemen in the war, and some were active supporters of communism and hoped that its North Vietnamese adherents would prevail. Just a few days after South Vietnam’s fall John Ellis, himself a strong supporter of anti-war causes, photographed this banner in Melbourne’s City Square celebrating the communist victories in Indo-China.
