"The British Government appears to have conceded the right of Vietnamese spokesmen to enter this country. Now that the United States is talking to the Vietnamese in Paris, Wilson thinks it safe for us to do likewise. The Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation, which started the campaign for free speech on Vietnam, hopes that all sections of the anti-war movement will extend this concession by demanding the frequent appearance of spokesmen of North Vietnam and the National Liberation Front of South Vietnam. ... We are therefore urging opponents in Britain of the war against the Vietnamese to go to London airport at 11 A.M. on Sunday March 16 to welcome Vietnamese spokesmen and to hear them speak in Trafalgar Square at 3 P.M."
