The World : Anti-Soviet Protest in Paris

Thousands of Jews marched in the center of Paris in the first of a series of human rights demonstrations against the Soviet Union during the week of an official French visit of Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev. The marchers were protesting restrictions on emigration of Soviet Jews and carried signs reading, “Gorbachev, Let My People Go.” The government has banned street rallies and marches during his visit, which begins Wednesday.
