  • Description

    Riot police were put on standby in Paris today following a call for widespread demonstrations against the invasion of Laos. Forty one French organisations including the main trade unions, the communist party and leading peace groups called for the protest. The organisations denounced the incursion as "brutal aggression" and said it was an American operation despite the use of Saigon Government troops.

    This film was taken during the day. At night the protests got out of hand and riot police were called in to disperse the demonstrators. Several people were hurt as police moved in with batons.
