Many thanks to Boxer and so many others for opening a window into the past for us.
Merry Christmas and a peaceful new year to all.
Stop the ride, I want to get off and go back.

"The Belfast Outdoor Relief Strike of October 1932"
https://aaroncrippsblog.wordpress.com/2015/01/21/the-belfast-outdoor-relief-strike-of-1932/

"Children and women take a break from preparing rock to pose for the camera, Belfast 1932"

I was told about that event by an elderly relative who was a child in Belfast at the time, it was usually referred to as the outdoor relief riots,... and it terrified the power elite in Ulster, because for once Catholics and Protestants were united in a common cause,... and the power elite subsequently rigged the system and society to prevent that from happening again.

Today the yellow vest movement has appeared in France, in response to similar issues, and it has even spread to at least one part of England, but it's forerunner was in Belfast in 1932.

As the bible says,... "nihil sub sole novum".

It is associated with the Belfast Dockers strike.

Incidentally my GF 1874 - 1940 was a Belfast docker. He died in Purdeysburn Hospital March 1940
