  • Description

    LORD SHACKLETON YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) VISITED MEN OF FOUR INFANTRY BATTALIONS INVOLVED ON INTERNAL SECURITY DUTIES IN ADEN. LORD SHACKLETON IS THE BRITISH MINISTER WITHOUT PORTFOLIO WHO HAS BEEN SENT TO ADEN TO SEEK WAYS OF SOLVING THE SOUTH ARABIAN PROBLEM.

    THE MEN WHO GUARD ADEN'S INTERNAL SECURITY GAVE LORD SHACKLETON A MUCH WARMER RECEPTION THAN HE HAS SO FAR RECEIVED FROM THE NATIONALIST FRONT THE LIBERATION OF OCCUPIED SOUTH YEMEN (FLOSY).

    WHILE LORD SHACKLETON WAS MEETING THE TROOPS, A FLOSY SPOKESMAN WAS PUBLICLY REJECTING ANY CHANCE OF TALKS.

    THE CHAIRMAN OF FLOSY WAS QUOTED AS SAYING: "FLOSY REFUSES TO HOLD ANY OFFICIAL OR UNOFFICIAL TALKS WITH THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT UNLESS THE PUPPET SOUTH ARABIAN FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS ABOLISHED, BRITISH OCCUPATION FORCES PULLED OUT, AND FLOSY RECOGNISED AS THE ONLY REPRESENTATIVE ORGAN OF PEOPLE IN THE SOUTH."
    IN LONDON, TOO, THERE WERE DEMONSTRATIONS AGAINST BRITAIN'S ACTIONS IN ADEN.

    A DEPUTATION, DEMANDING THE IMMEDIATE WITHDRAWAL OF BRITISH TROOPS FROM ADEN, MARCHED ON THE PRIME MINISTER'S RESIDENCE AT NUMBER 10 DOWNING STREET TO PRESENT A PETITION.

    THE DEPUTATION'S PROTEST MANIFESTED CALLED FOR THE "ELECTION OF A TRANSITIONAL GOVERNMENT WHICH WOULD RESUME POWER AND PREPARE FOR A DEMOCRATIC GENERAL ELECTION."
