  • Description

    In Manila, some 400 chanting Iranian students burned effigies of American President Jimmy Carter and Egyptian President Anwar Sadat during a noisy alit-American demonstration outside the Iranian Embassy on Tuesday (13 November).

    The students first gathered inside the Iranian Embassy and then paraded in its compound with clenched fists, protesting against the Shah and President Carter.

    The students carried placards calling for the "Beath of The Shah", Down With Carter" and "U.S. Give Back Shah to Us.".

    They also carried pictures of Iranian leader Ayotollah Khomelini and effigies of grinning president Carter and President Sadat wearing an American flag hat and Israeli stars of earnings.

    They were loud cheers as the effigies of Carter and Sadat were burned but there was a brief tussle among some students before the American flag was tossed into the flames.

    Demonstrations are banned under the present marital law in the Philippines and riot squad police with fire trucks were on standby but were not used.

    After their hour-long demonstration at the Iranian Embassy, they dispersed quietly but 100 students staying behind in the embassy to hold what they said was a 48-hour fast in solidarity with the Teheran students holding hostages of 100 people, including 60 American diplomats at the US Embassy in Teheran.
