    Background: A large crowd of Japanese Socialists demonstrated Sunday (19 January) outside Yokota Airbase, some 20 miles northwest of Tokyo, Japan. They were protecting the stationing of U.S. F-1050 fighter bombers at the airbase.

    The F-105D is a supersonic aircraft which is capable of carrying nuclear weapons. The Socialists and other Japanese groups object to the stationing of nuclear weapons on Japanese soil. A further demonstration by the Japanese Communist party is expected on Sunday (26 January).

    About 25-thousand Socialists came out from Tokyo by bus for the demonstration. They held a rally near the airbase and then moved out along a route of march which led by the front gate of the airbase. The demonstration proceeded in good order until some of the Socialists began snake-dancing and started to move out of the pre-arranged route. A brief scuffle ensued between the demonstrators and the police. Some of the demonstrators were slightly injured; there were no arrests and no further incidents.
