Nation-wide demonstrations planned

Nation-Wide demonstrations against the war in Vietnam will be held to coincide with the visit of the American Secretary of State, Mr. William Rogers, on 9 August.

The Wellington branch of the Committee on Vietnam is organising a series of motorcades through the city to advertise the demonstrations.

A week-long picket outside the American Embassy will begin on Monday 4 August.

Mr Rogers will be welcomed to Wellington on Friday 9 August by a demonstration at the airport.

The next day marchers will proceed from the waterfront to the Parliament Grounds at 1 p.m.

There, they will be joined by marchers from the University.

A public rally at the University beginning at 11 a.m. will involve folk singers, blues groups and addresses from representatives of appropriate organisations.
