  • Description

    In a display that bitterly disappointed officers of the Japan Congress against Atomic and Hydrogen Bombs, just one hundred people turned tout for Monday night's (June 11) protest in Tokyo, Japan, against the planned French nuclear tests in the Pacific.

    The week before, as demonstrations reached their height in Europe, the organisers had been forecasting a turn-out of up to 50,000 people.

    The demonstrators gathered to hear speeches in Ebisu Park and then marched to the French embassy where they chanted anti-French slogans.

    Australia and New Zealand must continue to do most of the work in opposing the tests. New Zealand has asked the International Court of Justice for an injunction against the tests, and protest vessels are in position by the testing site at Mururoa atoll.
