Explosion of the French atomic bomb at Reggan in the Sahara desert, Feb 13, continues to rouse protests in many countries.
Explosion of the French atomic bomb at Reggan in the Sahara desert, Feb 13, continues to rouse protests in many countries. In West Germany, demonstrations with placards lodged a protest petition at the French Embassy in Bad Godesberg, Mar 15.
To avert incidents endangering Franco-German relations, police inspected placards before the protest march began - ordered one, showing a skull, to be removed. The demonstrators belonged to the IDK, an anti-war organisation.
Police closely checked all visitors approaching the Embassy and ringed it with a security cordon.
Three officials of the IDK - Pastor von Wandersleb, Dr. Liedl, and Dr. Siegmund Schmitt - went through the cordon to hand the petition in on the Embassy steps but left without being able to see the French ambassador.
