  • Description

    DEMONSTRATORS MARCHED
    ON THE AMERICAN EMBASSY IN STOCKHOLM TODAY AND BURNED AMERICAN FLAGS IN PROTEST
    AGAINST UNITED STATES POLICY IN VIETNAM.

    POLICE CLASHED WITH THE DEMONSTRATORS AS THEY BURNED PAPER FLAGS IN THE STREET
    OUTSIDE THE EMBASSY, AND CORDONS PREVENTED THE CROWD, COMPOSED MAINLY OF
    STUDENTS AND YOUNG PEOPLE, FROM REACHING THE BUILDING.

    AMERICAN POLICY IN VIETNAM IS NOW BEING SUBJECTED TO A SERIES OF BUDDHIST
    DEMONSTRATIONS IN VIETNAM, AND A NUMBER OF BUDDHISTS HAVE COMMITTED SUICIDE BY
    FIRE.

    TODAY IN SAIGON 20,000 BUDDHISTS DEMONSTRATED IN FRONT OF THE BUDDHIST
    INSTITUTE, THE VIEN HOA DAO, AGAINST AMERICAN SUPPORT FOR THE MILITARY
    GOVERNMENT OF MARSHALL KY.

    SYNOPSIS: ANOTHER DEMONSTRATION AGAINST UNITED STATES POLICY IN VIETNAM - THIS
    TIME IN STOCKHOLM. POLICE WERE OUT IN FORCE TO KEEP THE DEMONSTRATORS - MAINLY
    STUDENTS AND YOUNG PEOPLE - FROM REACHING THE AMERICAN EMBASSY BUILDING. THERE
    WERE A NUMBER OF CLASHES OUTSIDE THE EMBASSY AS THE POLICE MOVE IN ON THE
    DEMONSTRATORS.

    AMERICAN POLICY IN VIETNAM HAS BEEN THE SUBJECT OF DEMONSTRATIONS IN MANY OTHER
    COUNTRIES, AND THIS PROTEST CO-INCIDED WITH A BUDDHIST DEMONSTRATION IN SAIGON
    AGAINST U.S. SUPPORT FOR PREMIER KY. THE SWEDISH DEMONSTRATORS BURNED PAPER
    REPLICAS OF THE AMERICAN FLAG AND THE CLASH WITH THE POLICE BECAME FIERCER AS
    THIS WAS GOING ON.

    EVENTUALLY THE POLICE DISPERSED THE DEMONSTRATORS, BUT THERE WAS A PILE OF
    LITTER TO BE CLEARED UP AFTER THIS WHITSUN DEMONSTRATION.
