demonstrators were unruly and ill-
mannered and that the police were
in complicity with them — are un-
supported by the facts, according
to a report released by the Amer-

former FBI agent and director of
AJC's trends analyses division, was
based on information obtained from
19 eye-witnesses to the event, plus
examination of television films and
news pictures. Among the eye-wit-
nesses were high Chicago Police
Department officials who accom-
panied the Pompidous when they
entered and left the Palmer House,
where the demonstration occurred,
and a security officer who also ac-
companied them in and out.
Other witnesses were city of-
ficials assigned to the demonstra-
tion, TV and radio reporters on
the scene and several youths who
allegedly accosted the Pompidous
as they left the hotel.

He also declared that no evidence
could be found to suggest that the

spired with the demonstration
planners to embarrass or harass

"It was a heterogeneous demon-
stration, predominantly Jewish, al-
though nuns in habit were observed
marching with the demonstrators.
It is a matter of record that not
‘7.5 one single demonstrator was ar-
rested and no violence erupted
despite the fact that one demon-
strator was injured when struck
by ice cubes dropped from a hotel
window, and the release of a stench
bomb by a counter-demonstrator."
