  • Description

    In the Olympic city of Munich on August 26, about one-thousand young Communists marched through the streets to demonstrate against the war in Vietnam, to coincide with the opening of the 1972 Olympic Games.

    Their main banner declared: "Two stories of Imperialism: People's murder in Vietnam and the Olympic Peace Show in Munich". A few banners attacked the Soviet Union for what was called their "betrayal of the People's war in Vietnam."
    The march was organised by the Pro-Chinese League against Imperialism associated with the West German and West Berlin Committee for Peace in Vietnam.

    The march ended with a rally at a Munich square.
