  • Description

    Members of the Irish Joint Solidarity Campaign staged a protest march through London on Sunday (5th July), while earlier in the weekend (Saturday 4th July) two bomb blasts in Paris caused light damage to the Irish and British Embassies there.

    After holding a protest meeting at Speakers' Corner in Hyde Park, members of the Irish Joint Solidarity Campaign marched through London Streets to the Prime Minister's residence. Downing Street was sealed off by police cordon when the marchers arrived, but after a short delay a three-man delegation was allowed to deliver a petition outlining the campaign's sympathies and condemning the strife and suffering in Northern Ireland.

    Meanwhile, in France, 2 bomb blasts caused slight damage to the Irish and British Embassies in Paris on Saturday (4th July). No casualties were reported in either case, but many windows were broken in the blast at the Irish Embassy and a television set in the caretaker's apartment was wrecked. The garage at the British Embassy, a few streets away, suffered a blown-in door and entrance in the second blast.
