  • Description

    ABOUT 2,000 PEOPLE DEMONSTRATED AND CHANTED ANTI-AMERICAN SLOGANS IN PARIS TONIGHT (THURSDAY) IN PROTEST AGAINST UNITED STATES AIR RAIDS ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF THE NORTH VIETNAMESE CITIES OF HANOI AND HAIPHONG. AND, IN COPENHAGEN, ABOUT 300 DEMONSTRATORS MET OUTSIDE THE AMERICAN EMBASSY AND PRESENTED A PETITION OF PROTEST AGAINST THE BOMBING.

    THE HALF-HOUR DEMONSTRATION IN PARIS WAS SPONSORED BY THE LEFT WING FRENCH PEACE MOVEMENT AND SUPPORTED BY THE COMMUNIST PARTY. IT WAS HELD IN THE VAST PLACE DE LA CONCORDE, NEAR THE AMERICAN EMBASSY.

    HUNDREDS OF POLICEMEN, MANY CARRYING RIFLES, HELD THE DEMONSTRATORS BACK FROM THE EMBASSY BUILDING. THERE WERE NO INCIDENTS AND NO ARRESTS.

    REPRESENTATIVES OF THE DEMONSTRATORS WERE ALLOWED INTO THE EMBASSY TO HAND IN PETITIONS FOR AN END TO THE AIR RAIDS.

    IN COPENHAGEN, THE DEMONSTRATION WAS A QUIET ONE ALSO.

    THERE WERE ANTI-AMERICAN POSTERS AND SPEECHES, BUT NO INCIDENTS.

    SIMILAR DEMONSTRATIONS WERE REPORTED YESTERDAY FROM LONDON AND IN WASHINGTON WHERE QUAKERS STAGED A SILENT SIT-IN IN THE SENATE GALLERY.
