50 demonstrators picket S. Vietnam Diplomatic Mission

50 demonstrators picket S. Vietnam Diplomatic Mission

Fifty students and workers picketed the DIC Building in Lambton Quay on Friday night demanding the expulsion of the Diplomatic Mission of the Republic of (South) Vietnam from the building.

An open letter to the manager of the store was presented to this effect.

There were no incidents except for an altercation between a serviceman who had served in Vietnam who, it was alleged, spat at and threatened to hit one of the demonstrators.

A guard who was posted on the roof of the building was thought to be guarding a flag of the mission.

The letter to the DIC said the building would be picketed every Friday evening, beginning at 7 p.m., until the mission was kicked out.
