A is the correct answer here.

Hippies is plural. So we need "their" => B and E out.
D is awkward as usage of "such" distorts the meaning.
A uses the correct relative clause => which modifies the "peace movements" (noun closest to it).

their is correct and should be there in the correct answer. Leaves us with A and C.
Between A and C => C is too wordy with "that were to include". Hence A is the correct answer!

In answer choice A , isn't it "Which include" rather than "Which included" since peace movements is plural.
