    Background: THREE THOUSAND PEOPLE MARCHED TO DOWNING STREET AND THE UNITED STATES EMBASSY IN LONDON TODAY (SUNDAY) DEMANDING THAT BRITAIN STOP BACKING 'U.S. AGGRESSION' IN VIETNAM. THE MARCH WAS ORGANISED BY BRITAIN'S COMMUNIST DAILY NEWSPAPER THE 'MORNING STAR'.

    'MORNING STAR' EDITOR GEORGE MATTHEWS HANDED IN A LETTER TO THE U.S. AMBASSADOR IN LONDON EXPRESSING 'THE STRONGEST POSSIBLE CONDEMNATION OF THE POLICY OF YOUR GOVERNMENT IN SENDING AN INVADING ARMY TO SOUTH VIETNAM AND BOMBING NORTH VIETNAM'.

    A PETITION WAS ALSO HANDED IN AT NUMBER 10 DOWNING STREET CALLING ON THE PRIME MINISTER TO DISSOCIATE THE GOVERNMENT FROM THE POLICY OF THE U.S. ADMINISTRATOR.

    SCUFFLES BROKE OUT ALONG THE ROUTE AS THE MARCHERS CHANTED 'HEY, HEY, LBJ, HOW MANY KIDS HAVE YOU KILLED TODAY?', AND 'YANKEE MURDERERS GO HOME'.
