Vietnam War

Sep 24, 1967:

Political instability continues in South Vietnam

In Saigon, Hue, and Da Nang, demonstrations are staged against the recent election of President Nguyen Van Thieu and Vice President Nguyen Cao Ky, led by the militant Buddhist faction, who charge that the elections were rigged and demand that the Constituent Assembly cancel the results. In the United States, the Americans for Democratic Action (ADA) adopted a resolution against the Johnson administration's policy and strategy in Vietnam, charging that in Vietnam the United States was "in league with a corrupt and illiberal government supported by a minority of the people."
