Description
BIAFRA PROTEST--Students from colleges in the Los Angeles area who are members of the Biafra Student Assn., march in native garb in front of the Federal Building to protest the possibility of the United States giving aid to Nigeria. The U.S. government had rejected Nigeria's request for military aid Monday night. A letter from the association urging a neutral U.S. stand was sent to President Johnson.
