Peoples March for Jobs leaflet, 1983

Following the 1981 protest march against unemployment, a second People’s March for Jobs was organised in 1983, through the Wales and Scottish TUCs and the TUC regional councils. The main march route was Glasgow to London, but feeder marches were organised from Lands End, Great Yarmouth, Liverpool, Hull and Halifax, so that many more localities could be involved in the demonstration. 60 marchers set off from Glasgow on April 23 but the numbers had grown to 500 by their arrival in London on June 3. There was a festival at the Crystal Palace on June 4 and a rally in Hyde Park attended by over 100,000 on June 5.
