VIETNAM VETERANS Against the War march toward Conven-

People in the street:

gavel came down inside Con-
vention Hall here lasts night, the
non-delegate portion of the
1972 Democratic Convention
opened with clenched fists in
the streets outside.
A sting of tear gas hung in
the ar as a motley army of
about 2000 from Flamingo Park
descended as promised on the
convention site, demanding that
750 poor people's representa-
tives be seated. Following a
march and a rally in front of
the hall, they confronted riot-
equipped police attempting to
get by force what the Demo-
crats wouldn't grant them -
access to the convention floor.
The demonstration began at
6 p.m. at Flamingo Park where
the group first moved out into
the streets. The march, which
at times, stretched for well over
five blocks, was a virtual me-
nagerie of political and cultural

members from Vietnam Veter-
ans against the War, Students
for a Democratic Society, Yip-
ples, Zipies, the Hare Krishna
religious cult, gay 'and women's
groups and other sects too nu-
nerous to mention.
As they moved out, Abernathy
led the singing of "We Shall
Overcome" and other old civil
rights songs. But, further down
the line, as the composition of
the demonstration changed
from predominately black to
predominately white, the sounds
changed from freedom songs to
"Yip-Yip-Yip--Yippee." and
"The pope smokes!dope."
