  • Description

    About 200 demonstrators from a group calling itself the "Aid to Northern Ireland Committee" took part in a protest near the United Nations on Saturday (24 February).

    They marched around Dag Hammarskjoeld Plaza, carrying placards and signs, and heard an address by a U.S. Congressman, Edward Koch.

    He said he backed the movement and deplored the training of British marines in the United States. They would later be used in Northern Ireland, he said.

    The leader of the Aid to Northern Ireland Committee, Michael Flanigan, charged the U.S. and Britain with "collaborating" by training Royal Marines at Campe le Jeune in North Carolina.
