    SYNOPSIS: More than 6,000 West Berliners demonstrated on Saturday for a peaceful solution to the war in Vietnam. The protesters, armed with banners and placards, paraded through the city's Neukoelln worker's district condemning the United States for what was described as 'genocide' in Indo-China.

    The protest march was organised by the West Berlin Socialist Unity Party, a sister organisation of East Germany's ruling party.

    The demonstrators also carried portraits of German Communist leaders Rosa Luxembourg and Karl Liebknecht. Many of the anti-Vietnam protesters used the march to commemorate the murders of the leaders by right wing soldiers 54 years ago.

    The march continued throughout the afternoon. Police reported there were no incidents.
