Students Picket in Support of Likud

Download PDF for this date

About 100 students, supporters of Likud, picketed yesterday outside Premier Menachem Begin’s residence in Jerusalem, in a counter demonstration to that of antiwar protestors at the some place.

The number of policemen at the site was reinforced to avoid the verbal confrontation becoming a physical one. The Likud demonstrators said the government should be allowed to end the war in Lebanon with a political gain, decried using death tolls for political purposes, and urged that the government not be weakened in its negotiations with other countries.

The demonstrators said they would leave a small group of picketers at the site, as long as the anti-war protestors remain there.
