    Background: ANTI-BRITISH PROTESTS IN PEKING THIS WEEK EXTENDED TO THE BRITISH NEWSAGENCY REUTERS. THE REUTER BUILDING WAS PLASTERED WITH "ANTI-IMPERIALISM" SLOGANS.
    A STRAW EFFIGY OF BRITISH PRIME MINISTER HAROLD WILSON WAS BURNED OUTSIDE THE REUTER CORRESPONDENT'S HOUSE. A SLOGAN PAINTED ON THE ROAD IN FRONT OF THE CHARRED REMAINS OF THE EFFIGY SAID "THE END OF BRITISH IMPERIALISM."
    A WILSON EFFIGY WAS ALSO BURNT OUTSIDE THE BRITISH OFFICE OF THE CHARGE D'AFFAIRES, BUT THE SITUATION GENERALLY HAS QUIETENED DURING THE PAST FEW DAYS.
    INSTEAD, THE SOVIET UNION HAS COME IN FOR RENEWED ATTACKS. DEMONSTRATORS ON SATURDAY MARCHED ON THE SOVIET EMBASSY SHOUTING "DOWN WITH SOVIET REVISIONISM".
    THE CHINESE AGITATORS HAVE LINKED THEIR DISAPPROVAL OF BRITISH HANDLING OF THIS WEEK'S HONG KONG UNREST WITH GENERAL DISSATISFACTION WITH SOVIET "REVISIONISM."
    HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF MARCHERS HAVE CHANTED THREE SLOGANS: "DOWN WITH UNITED STATES IMPERIALISM, DOWN WITH SOVIET REVISIONISM, AND DOWN WITH BRITISH IMPERIALISM".
