A coalition of Harvard organizations will demonstrate against Vice President Gerald R. Ford when he comes to the Harvard Club of Boston Monday to accept an award from the Harvard Republican Club.
The New American Movement (NAM), a member of the coalition, held an open meeting in the Strauss Common Room last night to organize support for the protest.
Also involved in planning the demonstration are the Attica Brigade, the Black Collective, the Harvard-Radcliffe Political Action Group, La Organization, the Organization for Solidarity of Third World Students, and the Radcliffe Women's Organization.
"The demonstration against Ford is a demonstration against the entire Nixon administration, and everything it is culpable for at home and abroad," Coleman P. Harrison '76, NAM representative to the coalition, told the meeting.
The demonstration is planned to begin with a rally in the Yard at 3 p.m. before assembling in front of the Harvard Club on Commonwealth Ave. at 4:30 p.m.
After Ford leaves the club, demonstrators will join a Boston-wide coalition at the Sheraton Hotel, where Ford is scheduled to attend a Middlesex County Republican Club fund-raising dinner.
An agent for the Boston office of the Secret Service said yesterday that the Service has contingency plans for dealing with protesters, but he declined to discuss them.
Members of the Secret Service will meet with Boston police today to plan security measures, the agent said.
