    Background: German pacifists led by Dr Martin Niemoller, the well known Protestant clergymen, and Frau Professor Renate Riemeck, demonstrated in the market place at Gelsenkirchen, West Germany, November 5. This was followed by a protest march through the streets.

    But a march to the Bundeswehr Barracks, Gelsenkirchen was forbidden. That did not deter several sympathisers from organising a silent sit-down protest outside the gates. Police interrupted - and many were taken away. Werner Hevden, an East German cameraman was arrested.

    Dr. Niemoller said the people who are Christians, and for God, must be against war and war service. He demanded that the German Government - and Governments throughout the world - should not do anything that might lead to war "The millions of victims during the last war should be an eternal reminder and warning to all human beings," he said.
