  • Description

    THOUSANDS OF ANTI-COMMUNIST RESIDENTS IN SAIGON, AMONG THEM MANY STUDENTS, YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY) STAGED A DEMONSTRATION AGAINST VIETCONG ATROCITIES. THEY CONDEMNED THE VIETCONG BOMBING OUTRAGE ON TUESDAY (30 MAR) AGAINST THE UNITED STATES EMBASSY IN THE HEART OF SAIGON IN WHICH 16 VIETNAMESE AND TWO AMERICANS WERE KILLED AND MORE THAN 100 OTHER INJURED. THE DEMONSTRATION WAS HELD IN FRONT OF THE CITY HALL.

    THE DEMONSTRATORS CAME FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE. THE SPEAKERS DENOUNCED THE VIETCONG ACTS OF MURDER AND CHARGED THEM OF BLINDLY EXECUTING ORDERS FROM COMMUNIST NORTH VIETNAM. THEY URGED THE PEOPLE OF SOUTH VIETNAM TO AVENGE THE VIETCONG FOR THEIR ATROCITIES AND ASKED THE VIETCONG TO GET OUT OF SOUTH VIETNAM.

    MANY ANTI-COMMUNIST SLOGANS, SUCH AS "DOWN WITH THE VIETCONG" AND "WE ARE DETERMINED TO FIGHT TO THE END OF ANNIHILATE THE VIETCONG" WERE SHOUTED BY THE DEMONSTRATORS.

    (THE DEMONSTRATORS' DELEGATES LATER VISITED THE VICTIMS OF THE VIETCONG BOMB BLAST IN HOSPITALS).
