    Background: A two-hour general strike in Amman, capital of Jordan, yesterday (Thursday), was one demonstration of the opposition there to the American proposals for a Middle-East settlement.

    It was announced today (Friday) that the Israeli cabinet had accepted the American plan, although the conditions had not been settled.

    In the early stage of the Amman protest, shops remained open, but later they closed their doors and barricaded windows in case of violence.

    Today (Friday) the demonstration was carried a step further when 20,000 people marched through the main streets in a parade organised by the Central Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO).

    The marchers included women, some in commando dress and wearing the Palestinian flag.

    Some placards carried by the marchers described the American initiative as a complete liquidation of the Palestine case and a conspiracy against the Palestinian people. Others advocated armed struggle for the liberation of Palestine.
