    Background: Demonstrators in Greece marched to Phaleron Harbour on June 23 to protest the presence of U.S. Navy Aircraft Carrier, Dwight Eisenhower, in the bay. The demonstration, organised by the communist-controlled Peace and Detente Committee, and the International Solidarity movement, had the backing of local authorities. The marchers gathered at four different points in Athens and nearby Piraeus, and proceeded en masse towards the Sixth Fleet anchorage at Phaleron, calling on the united States to remove military bases from Greece and all warships from the Mediterranean. Police had taken special measures to prevent disturbances and U.S. Naval personnel from the nuclear-powered carrier were allowed to disembark. Protesters stood by, chanting anti-U.S. and anti-nuclear slogans on the quayside.
