  • Description

    BANNER-WAVING DEMONSTRATORS PARADED THROUGH LOURENCO MARQUES, CAPITAL OF MOZAMBIQUE THIS WEEK IN SUPPORT OF PORTUGAL'S POLICY TOWARDS ITS OVERSEAS TERRITORIES. THE MARCHERS, COMPRISING SEVERAL THOUSAND EUROPEANS AND AFRICANS, GATHERED AT THE GOVERNOR'S PALACE, WHERE THEY WERE ADDRESSED BY THE MAYOR OF LOURENCO MARQUES AND OTHER SPEAKERS.

    THE DEMONSTRATION WAS STAGED ON TUESDAY, COINCIDING WITH A SIMILAR RALLY OF 250,000 PORTUGUESE IN LISBON. THE RALLY WAS IN RESPONSE TO AN APPEAL BY PORTUGAL'S PRIME MINISTER, DR. SALAZAR, FOR PORTUGUESE PEOPLE TO PRONOUNCE THEMSELVES IN A "SOLEMN AND PUBLIC ACTION" WHAT THEY THINK OF HIS GOVERNMENT'S OVERSEAS POLICY.

    (MOZAMBIQUE IS THE MOST POPULOUS OF PORTUGAL'S OVERSEAS TERRITORIES.)
