    THERE HAVE BEEN DEMONSTRATIONS IN MANY PARTS OF THE WORLD DURING THE PAST FEW DAYS AGAINST MR. IAN SMITH'S UNILATERAL DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE FOR RHODESIA. IN LONDON TONIGHT (SATURDAY) A LARGE CROWD OF YOUNG PEOPLE MARCHED THROUGH THE STREETS WAVING PLACARDS AND CHANTING SLOGANS AGAINST THE IAN SMITH REGIME.

    THE DEMONSTRATORS WERE LED BY MEMBERS OF A LOCAL BRANCH OF THE BRITISH COMMUNIST PARTY. THEY MARCHED FROM THE CENTRE OF FINSBURY -IN NORTH LONDON - TO THE PRIME MINISTER'S RESIDENCE, NO. 10 DOWNING STREET. THE NUMBERS OF MARCHERS INCREASED AS THE PROCESSION APPROACHED DOWNING STREET - AND A CHORUS OF CHANTING CALLED FOR "ONE MAN - ONE VOTE" AND "IAN SMITH - OUT".

    AT DOWNING STREET, POLICE STOOD BY WHILE LEADERS OF THE DEMONSTRATION HANDED IN A PETITION TO THE PRIME MINISTER. THEN, THE YOUNG PEOPLE DISPERSED QUIETLY.
