    Background: Delegations from France, Holland and Great Britain joined thousands of young Belgians in an anti-atom bomb protest march from the Belgian nuclear research centre at Mols into the city of Antwerp, where they listened to speeches by organizers of the demonstration.

    Insisting that they are non-political, the newly formed Belgian Committee for Nuclear Disarmament - in common with similar groups throughout the world - said they wanted to express their convictions in a demonstrative way, and so organised the Mols-Antwerp march.

    Copies of a note explaining their objections and objectives, had been circulated to the British, French, American and Russian Embassies in Brussels.

    Student delegates from Communist countries attended the opening of a nuclear disarmament conference in London, U.K., April 18, organised by the Combined Universities Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.
