  • Description

    About 230 foreign delegates from 52 countries and 15,000 Japanese assembled in Tokyo for the opening on Sunday (20 September) of the fourth World Anti-Communist League rally. Speakers included Miss Juana Castro, sister of the Cuban leader, Dr. Fidel Castro.

    The chairman of the League's Japanese executive committee, Mr. Ryoichi Sasakawa, opened the rally. He said free nations must not seek peace through appeasement of Communism.

    Miss Juana Castro, who helped her brother during the Cuban revolution but later fled to the United States, referred to the present regime in her homeland as a Communist tyranny. She claimed that its members were opposed to every noble human feeling.

    Mr. Strom Thurmand, the United States Senator for South Carolina, opposed nay further recognition of the People's Republic of China. He spoke of a "tremendous improvement" in the situation in South Vietnam as a result of the Vietnamisation programme which, he said, now meant that 93 per cent of the people of South Vietnam lived in secure areas.

    The conference issued a communique stating that Communism was the source of much human suffering in the world today.

    A big Left-wing demonstration against the rally was planned and riot police were on duty outside the hall in case of disorders. But the few demonstrators dispersed quietly after registering their protest
