    Background: STUDENT DEMONSTRATIONS IN TOKYO ON MONDAY (MAY 13). MORE THAN 2,000 YOUNGSTERS FROM COLLEGES AND THE UNIVERSITY ASSEMBLED IN THE CENTRE OF TOKYO TO PROTEST AGAINST A MUTUAL SECURITY PACT MEETING BETWEEN JAPAN AND THE UNITED STATES.

    THE PRESENT AGREEMENT ENDS IN 1970. JAPAN WANTS IT RENEWED FOR A FURTHER 10 YEARS. WITH THE AGREEMENT GOES THE PROVISION OF BASES FOR AMERICAN AIR, GROUND AND NAVAL FORCES.

    SOCIALIST AND COMMUNISTS - THE MAIN OPPOSITION IN JAPAN - AND THE STUDENTS WANT THE PACT TO END, ONCE AND FOR ALL, IN 1970.

    THE STUDENTS TRIED TO DEMONSTRATE, BUT MORE THAN 2,00 RIOT POLICE LEAD THEN TO A QUIET PART OF CITY AND DISPERSED THEM. TWO STUDENTS WERE ARRESTED. BUT JAPANESE OFFICIALS EXPECT MORE DEMONSTRATIONS AGAINST THE PACT.
