Huge New York Demonstration
Supports Cause of Soviet Jewry


viet Jews were promised on
Sunday that Americans will
not forget them as long as
their efforts to emigrate re-
main unrealized. This was
the pledge of the estimated
200,000 Jews and non-Jews
who marched down Broad-
way from City Hall to Bat-
tery Park at the tip of Man-
hattan in what Robert
Abrams, chairman of the
Greater New York Confer-
ence on Soviet Jewry,
called the largest turnout
for Solidarity Sunday for So-
viet Jewry in its six-year
It was also the pledge
made by speakers at the
demonstration, including
Midge Constanza, President
Carter's assistant for public
liaison, and Sen. Howard
Baker (R-Tenn.). the Sen-
ate minority leader.
Ms. Constanza, the first
representative from the
White House to speak at a
Solidarity Sunday demon-
stration here, did not men-
tion Carter by name. But
she said the American gov-
ernment will 'seek every
productive way to promote
human rights here and
abroad." She said while the
U.S. wants detente, human
rights "will assume a posi-
tion of importance" in all
dealings with foreign coun-
tries. She said peace must
be combined with justice,
and added, "I want to say
to Soviet Jews we have not
forgotten them."
Baker pledged that the
Republicans in the Senate
will work for the freedom
of Soviet Jewry and others
who seek freedom in the
USSR. He said today was
not important because of
the number of demonstra-
tors or the speakers "but
because of the courage of
those in the Soviet Union—
whose determination is far
more eloquent than our
mere words."
The demonstration at Bat-
tery Park was one - of many
held throughout the United
States and is part of a
month-long series of activi-
ties which culminate in Na-
tional Solidarity Day in ,
Washington on June 12. The
event was also the first
time that the Conference
held its demonstration in
lower Manhattan rather
than along Fifth Avenue
and eastward to the United
Nations. The march began
with youngsters dressed in
Soviet prison costumes sur-
rounded by banners saying
"Their Fight is Our Fight";
"Free losif Begun." and
"Free Anatoly Sharansky."
Abrams, who declared on
the platform that "We
pledge to Soviet Jews we
shall never forget you; we
are one people," pointed
out that today's demonstra-
tion was particularly dedica-
ted to Sharansky and
