Residents of Lahr, West Germany are protesting against the planned expansion of the Canadian air base near the town. Plans are underway to enlarge the airbase and to set up a large ammunition dump. Thousands of residents have signed a petition against the expansion, citing dangers to their drinking water, the interference which military bases cause to normal democratic freedoms, and the fact that such expansions are unnecessary at a time when East-West tensions are being reduced. They are asking that Canadians put pressure of their government to stop the expansion. Contact Siegfried Ziebold-Drechsel, Altdorfstrasse 40, D7880 Emmendingen 14, West Germany.
