    Background: Hundreds of young Tanzanian demonstrators converged on the TANU Youth League headquarters in Dar-es-Salaam on Saturday (15 November), for a protest rally against the United States presence in the Vietnam War.

    Organisers of the rally said it was also intended as an expression of solidarity with the "millions" of Americans who deplore the continuation of the war.

    Among the visitors at the demonstration was a leader of the South Vietnamese Liberation Front. Minister of State at the President's Office, Mr. Bhoke Munanka, was also present.

    The General-Secretary of the Afro-Shirazi Youth League from Zanzibar had flown to the mainland in order to address the rally.

    During the rally, a TANU Youth League statement was read out deploring the United States commitment in Vietnam and denouncing the use of napalm and "toxic" chemicals in the war.

    The Charge d'Affaires from the North Vietnamese Embassy was among the V.I.P.s listening to the statement, which went on to condemn the Vietnamisation of the war and to demand both American withdrawal from Vietnam and an end to "Imperialist" activity in the country.
