  • Description

    A "SIT DOWN" DEMONSTRATION WAS STAGED OUTSIDE THE SOVIET EMBASSY IN STOCKHOLM SWEDEN OCT 18. EXTRA POLICE WERE ON DUTY AS THE CROWD PROTESTED AGAINST THE RUSSIAN PLANT TO SET OFF A 50-MEGATON NUCLEAR BOMB. DEMONSTRATORS WERE ASKED TO LEAVE THE EMBASSY AREA - BUT MOST OF THEM REFUSED. THEY WERE CARRIED AWAY BY POLICE.

    YOUNG PEOPLE IN THE CROWD DECIDE TO SEND A TELEGRAM TO THE COMMUNIST PARTY CONGRESS IN MOSCOW, USSR, READING: "THE SWEDISH SOCIALIST YOUTH ORGANIZATION HAS WITH INDIGNATION AND DESPAIR LEARN FROM MR. KHRUSHCHEV THAT THE SOVIET UNION WILL BLAST A 50-MEGATON ATOMIC BOMB. WE PROTEST AGAINST THIS INSANITY. DOES NOT ANY ONE OF YOUR 5,000 DELEGATES DARE TO APPEAL TO YOUR LEADER FOR CONSIDERATION".

    IT WAS MR. KHRUSHCHEV WHO ANNOUNCED RUSSIA'S DECISION TO EXPLODE A BOMB OF 50-MEGATONS - EQUIVALENT TO 450,000,000 TONS OF TINT.
