Hippie Movement

Goals

The hippie goals of the 1960s involved peace, love and freedom. The Hippie movement started in San Francisco, California and spread across the United States. Their radical beliefs made it difficult for the conservative middle class to relate to them. Their vocal opposition to the United States’ involvement in the Vietnam War (1955-1975) and the increasingly rocky road to shared civil rights among all Americans led to this new, alternative form of activism.

Woodstock

In August 1969, the Woodstock Music and Art Festival took place in Bethel, New York, which for many, exemplified the best of hippie counterculture. Over 500,000 people arrived to hear the most notable musicians and bands of the era, perhaps one of the most poignant moments of the movement was on October 21st, 1967. 100,000 hippies, liberals and others marched peacefully on the Pentagon in an attempt to levitate it. They were met with a human barricade of 2,500 soldiers surrounding the Pentagon. And soon enough, violence erupted when the more radical protestors clashed with US Marshals. The protest lasted for almost three days before order was restored.

The hippie movement brought up new attitudes towards life, making it more colorful and joyful for the generation of 60’s and 70’s. those people needed some happiness in their life, after sad war experiences of their parents.

Our objective is to professionally administrate peace and love as well as dramatically revolutionize serendipity to set us apart from the hate of the world.
