TUC National Unemployment Demonstration, February 1933

The National Joint Council (TUC and Labour Party) and the Co-operative Union organised a massive demonstration in London on 5 February 1933. There was a march, led by members of the Blacksmiths' Union on horseback and in full regalia, from the embankment to a rally attended by 300,000 people in Hyde Park. Demonstrations were held in 23 other cities in Britain on the same day.

Due to the fierceness of the wind, a number of historical banners were destroyed.
