    AS ISRAEL'S AMBASSADOR TO BONN, ASHER BEN-NATAN, GAVE A LECTURE AT WEST BERLIN'S TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) AT THE INVITATION OF THE "JUNGE UNION BERLIN" (THE YOUTH UNION OF THE CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATIC PARTY), ABOUT ONE THOUSAND LEFTWINGERS DEMONSTRATED THROUGH THE CITY'S SHOPPING DISTRICT SHOUTING "ZIONISM IS FACISM", "LONG LIVE THE EL FATAH" AND "HO CHI MINH". POLICE WERE WELL-PREPARED FOR THE DEMONSTRATORS AND THE LECTURE ITSELF WAS HELD WITHOUT INCIDENT.

    THE DEMONSTRATORS CAME FROM SEVERAL LEFTIST GROUPS AND ORGANISATIONS - INCLUDING COMMUNIST PARTY MEMBERS, MARXISTS-LENINISTS, RED GUARDS AND SUPPORTERS OF THE PALESTINE GUERILLA MOVEMENT EL FATAH. THEY STARTED DOWN THE KURFUERSTENDAMM - THE CITY'S MAIN SHOPPING STREET - AND THEN FANNED OUT TO SIDE STREETS. BUT POLICE HAD BEEN ALERTED EARLY AND SET UP GUARD POSITIONS AROUND THE JEWISH COMMUNITY CENTRE, THE AMBASSADOR'S HOTEL AND THE UNIVERSITY ITSELF. NO MAJOR INCIDENTS WERE REPORTED AND AMBASSADOR BEN-NATAN DELIVERED HIS LECTURE UNDISTURBED BY THE DEMONSTRATION.
