The Victoria University Friends of Vietnam organisation held a march supporting the Seato Conference and its objectives.
The 85 members were nearly all students.
They marched along the same route as the University Vietnam Peace Committee and took up a position to the right of the opposing demonstrators in front of Parliament.
The chairman of the ad hoc FOV committee is an arts students, Jim Mitchell.
He said "we have come to show our support for the Seato Conference and for the government and people of South Vietnam."
He voiced satisfaction at the number present and commented that it was much easier to persuade students to demonstrate dissatisfaction with the status quo than to demonstrate in favour of it.
He fell more students than those present shared his views.
