The demonstration outside the US Consulate made headlines around the world, and increased pressure on the US Senate.
In Australia it had a different consequence. A letter writer to the Sydney Morning Herald, Mrs R. Schodde wrote: "Only when all Australians stop treating the aborigine as a second class citizen and accept him into the white society without reservation can our student groups protest against racial discrimiantion in other counties without hypocrisy".
As one of the organisers of the demonstration this point struck home to me. It had a similar effect on others.
