  • Description

    ANOTHER ANTI-GERMAN DEMONSTRATION WAS STAGED IN DENMARK YESTERDAY (SUNDAY) IN PROTEST AGAINST THE PRESENCE OF WEST GERMAN TROOPS ON DANISH SOIL. ABOUT 200 PEOPLE DROVE IN A FLEET OF CARS FROM SKAGEN TO AALBORG, IN NORTH JUTLAND, FOR A RALLY WHICH CALLED FOR AN END TO DANISH-GERMAN CO-OPERATION IN THE MILITARY SPHERE.

    WEST GERMAN TROOPS ARRIVED IN DENMARK LAST WEEK TO TAKE PART IN A NATO EXERCISE NAMED 'BIG HAUL'. IT WAS THE SECOND TIME SINCE THEIR ARRIVAL CAME JUST TEN DAYS AFTER THE TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF DENMARK'S LIBERATION IN WORLD WAR TWO.

    WHEN THE DEMONSTRATORS REACHED AALBORG, THEY MARCHED TO THE TOWN HALL FOR ADDRESSES BY A DANISH TRADE UNION LEADER, PETER KJAER, AND A GERMAN CIVIL SERVANT, FRITZ TECH, OF FLENSBURG. BOTH SPOKE AGAINST THE REVIVAL OF THE MILITARY IN GERMANY, WHILE PETER KJAER TOLD THE CROWD THAT DENMARK SHOULD END CO-OPERATION WITH WEST GERMANY IN NATO.

    A FEW HOURS BEFORE, WEST GERMAN TROOPS COMPLETED THE UNLOADING OF 1000 TONS OF AMMUNITION FOR NATO FORCES IN DENMARK AT A BEACH ABOUT 5 MILES (8 KMS) FROM AALBORG.
