World Youth Festival Opening Day Parade
Imageswww.radfilms.com Americans prepare to board trucks for
the Festival Opening Day Parade. The banner they carry originally
read: "USA Delegates Salute VIth World Festival,"
but a small group of self-styled "anti-communists" among the 180
Americans who'd come to Moscow refused to carry it because they said
that they were neither
"delegates" nor ready to "salute" a communist-sponsored event, a
torn bedsheet and shoe polish was used to change it to "USA
Participants Salute World Youth."
