Struggle Or Starve : Working-Class Unity in Belfast's 1932 Outdoor Relief Riots, Paperback / softback Book

Struggle Or Starve : Working-Class Unity in Belfast's 1932 Outdoor Relief Riots Paperback / softback

Description

In October 1932, the streets of Belfast were gripped by vicious and widespread rioting that lasted the best part of a week.

Thousands of unarmed demonstrators fought extended pitched battles against heavily-armed police.

Unemployed workers and, indeed, whole working-class communities, dug trenches and built barricades to hold off the police assault.

The event became known as the Outdoor Relief Riot - one of very few instances in which class sympathy managed to trump sectarian loyalties in a city famous for its divisions.
