Including movements like the civil rights movement and the anti-Vietnam War movement, the list below is only a small glimpse of the 1960s fights that shook the world and the demonstrations that created the base of all that followed.

Below you will find a series of images from the US and England, depicting people holding signs of rage, indignation and disappointment against the system and the authorities. What is very interesting is that each and every one of these movements, fights and signs contributed to every single one American person’s life today.
