  • Description

    THERE HAVE BEEN MORE PROTESTS ABOUT AMERICAN TROOPS IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC. THIS ONE IN DJAKARTA, INDONESIA, WAS STAGED BY THE COMMUNIST YOUTH ORGANISATION, PEMUDA RAKJAT, ON SATURDAY.

    ABOUT 500 YOUNG DEMONSTRATORS TOOK PART AND CARRIED SLOGANS AGAINST "BRITAIN, OUR ENEMY" AS WELL. BUT MOST ATTACKED AMERICAN POLICY WITH SPEAKERS DEMANDING AN END TO "AMERICAN AGGRESSION" IN THE CONGO AND VIETNAM.

    A STRONG FORCE OF POLICE AND TROOPS WERE ON DUTY AND THERE WERE NO INCIDENTS OUTSIDE THE U.S. EMBASSY WHERE A PETITION WAS HANDED IN BY THE DEMONSTRATORS.

    ANOTHER PETITION WAS HANDED IN AT THE GOVERNMENT BUILDING.

    IT DEMANDED THE WITHDRAWAL OF THE U.S. TROOPS FROM DOMINICA. IF THE UNITED STATES FAILED TO DO SO, IT URGED THE GOVERNMENT TO SEIZE ALL AMERICAN CAPITAL IN INDONESIA AND SEVER DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS.
