  • Description

    For nine months, relays of anti-Vietnam War demonstrators have kept vigil outside the United States Embassy in London, but on Friday (22 December) their ranks were swelled by scores of extra protestors incensed at President Nixon's resumption of intensive bombing by B-52 aircraft. More than a hundred kept watch outside the Embassy during the day, and in the early evening many...including numerous show-business personalities...marched through city streets carrying placards and singing protest songs.

    SYNOPSIS: The United States Embassy in London where, for the past nine months, relays of anti-Vietnam War demonstrators have kept continuous vigil.

    On Friday, however, their ranks were swelled by scores of extra people anxious to demonstrate their views about the war, and particularly incensed by President Nixon's resumption of intensive B-52 bombing raids into North Vietnam. The demonstrators, who included many show-business personalities later marched through the city.
