More than one rally[edit]

In Australia, this went far beyond the one rally. There was an ongoing committee that was the focus of all protest and most of the opposition to Australia's involvement in the war. I can vividly remember that the Vietnam Moratorium Day in 1971 coincided with the second semester Philosophy (i) examination. We were assured by the professor in lectures that nobody would be penalised for failing to attend, hey only to each then receive a letter from him on University letterhead saying that this wasn't true, that anyone who failed to attend because they were protesting, whether or not they attended a formal rally, risked a real possibility of failure. Those were heady days... Andrewa 22:15, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

I am currently researching the Australian Moratorium movement for a PhD, so I've bulked out the Australian section a little. I'm aware a lot of it :will need citations, but unfortunately many of the sources are contained deep in archives (though I can give you most of them if needed). What I've :put in there should give a little more detail... 203.28.252.10 14:36, 4 September 2007 (UTC) (Nick, Uni of Sydney)
Well, citations don't have to be available online (although it's great when they are) - and it's better to have legitimate references that are not accessible than to have none at all. So, yes, please do add any appropriate citations that you have. I was not aware of the Australian moratorium movement, although I participated actively in the US one - so it's great to have this material. Tvoz |talk 07:32, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Stub category[edit]

There doesn't seem to be a suitable stub category for Australian History articles. I'm thinking of proposing one. Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Proposals#Proposing new stubs - procedure suggests that a good number of articles is 60 articles or more, or 30 or more if associated with a WikiProject, though this figure may vary from case to case.

What other stubs are there that might qualify? I'll have a look myself of course, but if anyone else wants to help that would be appreciated.

Or, have I overlooked an existing category? Andrewa 22:28, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

Sunburst?[edit]

From the Australia section:

marches for Vietnam went on under the Moratorium sunburst until 1975

What does "sunburst" mean here? Was there a flag or banner showing such a design, or what? This needs explaining. Loganberry (Talk) 16:53, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

I believe the sunburst referred to is this image: http://www.joseflebovicgallery.com/catalogue/archive/cat-129-2008/Large/0070.jpg which was commonly seen on badges and banners.220.233.34.248 (talk) 08:04, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
