    Background: Demonstrators led by members of the London District Communist Party marched Aug. 15 from Hyde Park Corner to the Belgian Embassy in London, where they delivered a note calling for an end to "Belgian interference in the Congo".

    The demonstrators carried placards protesting against "Belgian interference", and it was the first of a series of six similar parades planned for the week ending Aug. 20.

    With Belgian troops now handing over in Katanga to the UN, the parades seem a little out of date.
