Bernie DeGroat, Spero News: Did Obama’s Election mean the End of the Anti-War Movement?
«As president, Obama has maintained the occupation of Iraq and escalated the war in Afghanistan,» said Heaney, U-M assistant professor of organizational studies and political science. «The antiwar movement should have been furious at Obama’s ‘betrayal’ and reinvigorated its protest activity.
«Instead, attendance at antiwar rallies declined precipitously and financial resources available to the movement have dissipated. The election of Obama appeared to be a demobilizing force on the antiwar movement, even in the face of his pro-war decisions.»
