    Background: 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.

    ON JUNE 13, THEY WERE REFUSED ENTRY INTO FRANCE BY THE AUTHORITIES. THEY RETURNED TO BRITAIN BY BOAT, AND RE-ROUTED THEIR TREK TO THE SOVIET CAPITAL BY WAY OF BELGIUM.
