    Background: About 2,000 left-wing demonstrators protesting against American action in Vietnam and the new regime in Greece snarled traffic in the streets of Rome yesterday (Thursday).

    The demonstrators milled about in St. John Square after their march from Vittoro Square. They carried posters saying "Let Johnson Die" and "Long Live Free Greece."
    Scores of police guarded the United States embassy in Rome. They were equipped with water cannon, but demonstrators did not go there.

    At their meeting in St. John Square the demonstrators were addressed by trade union figures and leaders of Italian left-wing groups.
