  • Description

    Palestinian students in Iraq staged a sit-in at the United Nations Information Centre in Baghdad on Monday (9 October) in protest against recent restrictive measures imposed against Arabs working and studying in West Germany.

    The students presented ??? note to the U.N. office in Baghdad explaining their reasons for the sit-in. The note claimed that Bonn authorities are acting in close co-operation with the Zionist Intelligence Service.

    Bonn's nationwide actions against Arab citizens include visa restrictions, arrests and deportations. The measures follow last month's Palestinian commando attack on Israel's Olympic team in Munich.

    The protest by the Palestinians in Baghdad followed similar demonstrations in several other countries, including West Germany. Film of this protest in Baghdad was supplied by the Iraqi Broadcasting and Television Establishment.

    SYNOPSIS: More protests by Palestinians against West Germany were held earlier this week. This time they were at the United Nations Information Centre in Baghdad. At the U.N. building, Palestinian students, attending university in Iraq, draped a flag and several placards over the outer wall of the grounds. The protest was against the West German government's actions against Arabs in that country. The restrictions imposed by Bonn followed last month's Palestinian commando attack on Israel's Olympic team in Munich.

    The students in Baghdad also staged a sit-in for several hours inside the U.N. Information Centre in sympathy with Palestinian students and workers in Bonn, who were holding a hunger strike in protest against the Bonn Government's restrictions against Arab citizens. The West German measures include visa restrictions, arrests and deportations. The government has also banned the Palestinian Workers' and 'Students' Organisations.
