  • Description

    IN MANY CORNERS OF THE EARTH PEOPLE HAVE VOICED THEIR PROTEST AGAINST THE RESUMPTION OF NUCLEAR TESTS IN THE ATMOSPHERE BY THE SOVIET UNION. IN BOMBAY OCT. 2, BANNER-CARRYING DEMONSTRATORS MARCHED THROUGH THE STREETS TO EXPRESS THEIR APPREHENSION AT REPORTS OF A DANGEROUS INCREASE IN RADIO-ACTIVITY IN JAPAN, CALCUTTA AND VARIOUS OTHER PLACES.

    THE CAMPAIGNERS HANDED IN NOTES AT THE RUSSIAN, AMERICAN AND FRENCH EMBASSIES DESCRIBING THEIR RESENTMENT AT THE CONTINUANCE OF TESTS. THERE WERE NO INCIDENTS.

    THIS NOTE DESCRIBED THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THEIR SILENT MARCH: "WE FEEL THAT IT WOULD BE IN THE FITNESS OF THINGS TO OBSERVE THE COMING BIRTHDAY OF MAHATMA GADHI, WHO MARRIED PEACE TO FREEDOM AND LOVE TO NON-VIOLENT RESISTANCE, BY DEMANDING THE DIRECT ELECTION OF A WORLD PARLIAMENT BY THE SUFFRAGE OF MANKIND IN ORDER TO SIGN A GENERAL DISARMAMENT TREATY, WITH EFFECTIVE INSPECTION AND CONTROL, AND A COVENANT ABOLISHING COLONIALISM AND RACIAL DISCRIMINATION THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.
