    A GROUP OF ABOUT 20 DEMONSTRATORS AGAINST NUCLEAR WEAPONS WERE MARCHING THROUGH BELGIUM JULY 3 ON THEIR WAY TO MOSCOW. A SMALL CORE OF THEM SET OUT ON FOOT FROM SAN FRANCISCO, USA, AND THE REST - INCLUDING BRITONS, NORWEGIANS, SWEDES AND FRENCH - JOINED IN BRITAIN.

    THEY ARRIVED IN AUDENAERDE JULY 3, AND HOPED TO REACH THE BELGIAN CAPITAL (BRUSSELS) ABOUT THREE DAYS LATER. THEY ARE WALKING ABOUT EIGHT HOURS A DAY; AND ARE "ARMED" WITH PLACARDS AND BANNERS.
