  • Description

    On todays US army day the German Bundeswehr first time showed their latest weapon a Honest John US type rocket to the population of Giessen. Here in Giessen is located the first Bundeswehr Regiment equipped with Rockets. The US Army was represented with conventual weapons like tanks guns and other infantry arms. The Giessens youth were very interested. For the members of the organizations against the atomic death it was a welcome opportunity to start a demonstration but only a number of resisters took part. Giessen has a population of Ca. 60000 people. The meeting took place in the immediate neighbourhood of the display with protestant priest Herr Weber of university city Marburg as main speaker.
