The picture above was taken by photographer Nick Ut and shows children fleeing from their village, napalmed by the Americans in 1972. The soldiers behind the children are South Vietnamese troops. They’d requested air cover to strike the village, in the belief that Vietcong forces were hiding in it. The naked girl in the centre of the picture is Phan Thi Kim Phuc. She received very bad napalm burns from the bombing.

The use of props like flowers and music were meant to turn anti-war rallies into a form of street theater thereby reducing the fear, anger and threat that is inherent within protests
