A group of anti-war demonstrators staged a protest outside the U.S. Embassy in London today (Sunday) over President Nixon's decision to send American forces into Cambodia.
When the protesters arrived at Grosvenor Square, they were confronted by a strong police cordon outside the Embassy building. Many demonstrators carried banners and posters of President Nixon--some depicting him in uniform. Several pictures of the President were burned.
Several Americans were among the demonstrators, and some burned their draft cards publicly in protest against their government's policy in Cambodia. One of the Americans addressed the group:-
The protest was generally peaceful, and there were no clashes with police. Demonstrators were allowed inside the building to deliver a protest letter addressed to the Ambassador.
