  • Description

    ONE OF THE STAUNCHEST ANTI-COMMUNIST NATIONS OF THE WORLD, SOUTH VIETNAM CELEBRATED ON NOVEMBER 4, THE ANTI-COMMUNIST WORLD DAY TO COMMEMORATE THE MEMORIES OF THOSE WHO DIED FIGHTING THE NORTH VIETNAM COMMUNISTS, AND OTHER COMMUNISTS IN HUNGARY AND TIBET.

    IN THE SOUTH VIETNAM CAPITAL OF SAIGON, AT LAM-SON PLACE, THOUSANDS OF VIETNAMESE GATHERED TO PAY RESPECTS TO THOSE WHO DIED FOR FREEDOM.

    WOMEN WHO WERE PROMINENT IN THE RALLIES CARRIED BANNERS THAT SAID "LET US IMITATE THE BRAVE HUNGARIAN PEOPLE" AND "LONG LIFE TO HUNGARIAN PEOPLE AND THOSE WHO ROSE AGAINST THE NORTH VIETNAM COMMUNISTS".

    PROMINENT LEADERS OF SAIGON EXHORTED PEOPLE TO FIGHT COMMUNISM, AGAINST WHICH SOUTH VIETNAM HAS EVERY SEASON TO PROTECT HERSELF.

    THE YOUNG REPUBLIC OF SOUTH VIETNAM, CREATED BY THE GENEVA AGREEMENT IN 1954 AFTER INDO-CHINESE CEASE FIRE, HAS A COMMON BORDER WITH COMMUNIST NORTH VIETNAM ALONG 17TH PARALLEL, AND FACES CONSTANT THREAT OF COMMUNIST SUBVERSION.
