**April 30, 2015 marks the 40th anniversary of the victory of the people
of Viet Nam over the US military. The Vietnamese national liberation
struggle moved the entire world and is one of the most important
historical events of the 20th century.
The people’s war waged by the people of Viet Nam, reaching a peak in the
Tet Offensive of 1968, demonstrated that a united people, even in a poor
and underdeveloped nation, could defeat the most powerful military and
economic power on earth.
In an era when national liberation struggles surged in Asia, Africa, and
Latin America, the struggle of the Vietnamese people provided an
inspiring example to solidarity movements around the world and inside
the US. The movement against the war in Viet Nam in the US was
inextricably tied to the early anti-imperialism of the civil
rights/Black liberation movement, and many other movements of the 1960s
The victory of Viet Nam is a living example**that holds lessons for the
ongoing struggle against US imperialism today. We have created this
*online tribute <http://www.freedomarchives.org/Viet%20Nam.html>,* much
of it drawn from the Freedom Archives, to help illustrate and pass on
