  • Description

    AS THE UNITED STATES FIRED THE SECOND SHOT OF ITS CURRENT NUCLEAR TESTS IN THE ATMOSPHERE OVER THE MID-PACIFIC, APRIL 27, REACTION WAS SWIFT IN DENMARK - ANTI-BOMB CAMPAIGNERS DEMONSTRATED OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES EMBASSY IN COPENHAGEN AND TUSSLED WITH POLICE ASSIGNED TO CLEAR THEM OFF.

    SOME DEMONSTRATORS PUSHED THROUGH THE POLICE CORDON AROUND THE EMBASSY AND RUSHED FORWARDS TO PICKET THE EMBASSY. COPYING THE BRITISH STYLE SIT-DOWN METHOD OF PROTESTING, THEY SQUATTED ON THE STEPS FOR A FEW SECONDS ONLY - POLICE HAULED THEM AWAY, LIKE SACKS OF POTATOES, INTO WAITING POLICE VANS.

    IN TOKYO, THE SAME DAY, DEMONSTRATORS FOUGHT WITH THE POLICE AND THERE WERE MANY BAN-THE-BOMB DEMONSTRATIONS EARLIER IN WASHINGTON AND LONDON. THE RESUMED U.S. TESTS ARE EXPECTED TO CONTINUE FOR TWO OR THREE MONTHS WITH BETWEEN 24 AND 36 EXPLOSIONS.
