On April 15, which was the federal income tax filing deadline in 1967, hundreds of thousands of Americans took to the streets in New York City and San Francisco to protest the Vietnam War. In New York, protestors marched from Central Park to the UN building to hear speeches given by fierce critics of the war like Martin Luther King, Jr., Benjamin Spock, and Jan Berry Crumb. In San Francisco, more than 100,000 protestors participated in the event. Individuals taking part in the demonstrations opposed the use of federal taxes toward offensive military ends. Doves and olive branches were popularly used as symbols for the anti-war movement as they traditionally stand for peace.
