  • Description

    About 3000 anti-Vietnam war demonstrators clashed with New York City Police outside the hotel where Secretary of State Dean Rusk made a major foreign policy speech, Tuesday, (November 14).

    Mr. Rusk renewed his offer to negotiate for peace, but said that now there was no alternative to escalation of the Vietnamese war. Hanoi had just a few hours before rejecting President Johnson's offer to negotiate with North Vietnamese leaders on a natural ship.

    Outside the hotel where Mr. Rusk was speaking, reinforced police lines prevented demonstrators from effective harassment of the Secretary's speech. Frustrated, the demonstrators fought with police and pelted them with stones, bottles, and eggs. Hundred of the rioters surged though the streets and briefly blocked traffic until they were carried way by police. At least 34 demonstrators were arrested. Five policemen and an undetermined number of demonstrators were injured.
