  • Description

    BRITAIN'S ANNUAL WEEKEND OF MORAL PROTEST AGAINST NUCLEAR WEAPONS IS THIS EASTER WITHOUT ITS HEADLINE-CATCHING CENTREPIECE, THE ALDERMASTON MARCH. NEVERTHELESS, SCORES OF PROTEST MARCHES AND RALLIES HAVE BEEN SET DOWN FOR THE EASTER HOLIDAY PERIOD AND AMONG THEM A TWO-DAY MARCH ON THE HEADQUARTERS OF THE U.S. AIRFORCE IN BRITAIN, AT RUISLIP, ON LONDON'S WESTERN OUTSKIRTS.

    THE MARCHERS, WHO ASSEMBLED AT MARBLE ARCH SET OUT THIS MORNING, (FRIDAY), TO MARCH TO THE SUBURB OF KENTON, WHERE THEY DISPERSED UNTIL TOMORROW MORNING. THE MARCHERS HOPE TO COMPLETE THE MARCH ON THE AMERICAN BASE, WHERE THEY'LL STAGE A RALLY.

    ORGANIZED BY THE COMMITTEE OF 100, THE MARCH TO RUISLIP WILL BE A PRELUDE TO A LARGER RALLY TO BE HELD ON EASTER MONDAY. THEN, A TWO-PRONGED MARCH WILL BE STAGED THROUGH LONDON'S STREETS TO PUBLICIZE THE NUCLEAR ISSUE.

    THE CHAIRMAN FROM THE CAMPAIGN FOR NUCLEAR DISARMAMENT, CANON JOHN COLLINS, SAID THAT THE AIM THIS EASTER WAS TO ENSURE THAT THE QUESTION OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS WAS NOT DODGED DURING THE FORTHCOMING BRITISH ELECTIONS. HE HOPED THE DEMONSTRATIONS WOULD MAKE THE ELECTORATE AWARE OF THE "THE VITAL IMPORTANCE OF BRITAIN GETTING OUT OF THE WHOLE NUCLEAR STRATEGY."
