National Unemployed Workers Movement Demonstration in Felling, Tyneside.


This shows a demonstration marching through Felling, Tyneside, in 1937 or 1938. The group of men are from the Felling branch of the National Unemployed Workers’ Movement; the man in the foreground is selling papers, probably the Communist ‘Daily
Worker’. The woman is helping to carry a banner commemorating the founding of the
Durham Miners’ Association in 1832, a reminder to the unemployed of the need to be organised. The banner at the rear is inscribed ‘Died in Defence of Democracy’, which means that the demonstration as a whole was being held to support of Republican Spain.

The fact is today so many people are happy in lives working for Asda Tesco neat tidy, clean with a bit of dope when they need to unwind drink to sober the thought of another days work and people do not expect life to be anything but well pathetic, we have given up fighting for a better life. it's a dam pity.
