Description :
Report of an anti-Vietnam war demonstration held in Adelaide on Saturday 9 May 1970. Preceded by a group of 50 'Freedom for citizens' heckling demonstrators by shouting, "Here come the commies", the march from Elder Park up King William Street to Victoria Square stretched for more than two blocks. Then Leader of the Opposition, Don Dunstan, told the rally that Australians who claimed, 'My country right or wrong,' were not patriots but traitors. After the speeches and folk singing, the march returned to Elder Park and a concert in the Advertiser Sound Shell.
