  • Description

    A small crowd of demonstrators marched through San Francisco on Thursday (24 August) in a protest against the continuing Vietnam war, and the policies of President Richard Nixon.

    After the march, the demonstrators held a rally - and were addressed by actress Jane Fonda, a leading anti-war campaigner in the United States. She spoke of her visit to North Vietnam.

    Miss Fonda's speech came twenty-fours hours before official Congressional transcripts were released in the United States revealing that during her recent visit to North Vietnam, she has used Radio Hanoi to tell United States airmen to hate the officials who sent them on bombing missions.

    It was also announced that the United States Justice Department is to conduct an inquiry into Miss Fonda's activities in North Vietnam. Some Congressmen have suggested she is guilty of treason.
