Une fleur contre des fusils

En octobre 67 la jeunesse américaine organise une marche sur le Pentagone pour manifester contre la guerre au Viet Nam. Cette marche va réunir 100 000 personnes.
Marc Riboud immortalisera cette scène où une femme est face aux soldats armés avec une fleur.
La semaine dernière j'ai entendu une partie d'un reportage où il y avait le témoignage du soldat qui était face à cette femme à l'époque.
Il a été tellement déstabilisé par ce geste de complète non violence qu'il en a été profondément bouleversé. Il a quitté l'armée et est devenu un apôtre de la non violence aux USA.
Je ne sais plus son nom. J'ai juste retrouvé la photo sur le net.
