The Massive Peace Demonstrations of 1981 & 1983

Remember the massive protests of people in The Netherlands against the placing of cruise missiles and nuclear weapons in general, back in the early 1980's? Everyone alive then was there, first in Amsterdam, and later in The Hague, 600.000 strong. From all walks of life, and all parts of the country, toddlers and old-aged, black and white, nuns and enlisted soldiers, guestworkers, Hari Krishna's,  anarchists, even members of the conservative middle of the road Christian Democrats, joined together harmoniously to ward of evil.
