    Background: Five thousand people assembled in Town Hall Square, Frankfurt, West Germany, May 16, when Minister for All-German Affairs Lemmer spoke on the re-unification of Germany.

    The meeting - one of many held simultaneously throughout West Germany - was sponsored by the United Germany Movement, to co-incide with opening of the Paris Summit Conference. It was hoped that these demonstrations of the solidarity would impress the Summit participants.

    Before the meeting began, Communists distributed pamphlets urging a united Germany free of military attachment to any power bloc; particular emphasis was laid on dis-armament and abandonment of nuclear weapons.
