Abstract (Document Summary)

Several thousand demonstrators, representing an odd mixture of leftist, pacifist, religious and nationalist organizations, marched through the downtown streets of Geneva on Saturday, heaping both scorn and demands on President Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev.

In a peaceful protest staged several hours before President Reagan's arrival in Geneva and three days before the opening of his summit conference with Gorbachev, they walked behind a huge banner that proclaimed, "Reagan-Gorbachev: The World Does Not Belong to You."

A majority of the marchers seemed more critical of Reagan than of Gorbachev, but there were enough barbs to trouble both. And a Maoist group, which holds the United States and the Soviet Union in equal disdain, hoisted a red banner with the scornful slogan, "Reagan Is the Last Cowboy, and Gorbachev is the New Czar."
