  • Description

    There were further protests against the French nuclear tests in the South Pacific in Paris and outside the French Embassy in The Hague on Saturday (2 June).

    In Paris more than 100 demonstrators form many nations were detained by French police after a sit-in inside Notre Dame Cathedral.

    The detentions came after the demonstrators, many from Australia and New Zealand, had been prevented by police from marching to the Elysee Presidential Palace.

    But outside the Elysee Palace there were several individual protesters, including Australian women with their babies, an Australian touring in France, and a French worker opposed to atomic tests of all kinds.

    Many of the main group of demonstrators had taken part in the London to Paris protest march which was stooped last week at the border between France and Belgium by French police. They split up, crossed the border individually, meeting up again in Paris.

    At the French Embassy at The Hague young people began a day long demonstration. The protesters included two members of Parliament.
