  • Description

    There were no reports of any arrests, and observers said that the demonstration was peaceful.

    SYNOPSIS: In Paris on Saturday more than 10,000 left-wing supporters marched through the streets to demand the withdrawal of American troops in Vietnam. The demonstrations came at a time when, in other world capitals, people were protesting over the nuclear explosion detonated by the United States a mile beneath the Aleutian Island of Amchitka.

    Observers in Paris reported that the demonstration was peaceful and that there were arrests. During the march some of the demonstrators handed out leaflets denouncing the war in Indo-China, and calling for an end to the conflict.

    The French Police were out in force in case of any violence, but were to have a peaceful day. For the 10,000 marchers it was a "rest in the place de la Nation...where they hear speeches from left-wing leaders criticising American involvement in the war."
