    Background: Sixteen people were arrested in London on Sunday (August 15th) when fighting broke out between police and demonstrators during a Civil Rights march protesting against internment without trial in Northern Ireland.

    The arrests were made after an unsuccessful attempt to break through police barriers in Dawning Street where the demonstrators wanted to hand in a protest note to the Prime Minister, Mr. Edward Heath.

    The marchers also protested at the Home Office, administrative centre for British policy in Northern Ireland, and at the Irish Embassy
    The demonstrators were seeking the release of People recently interned in the British province, the withdrawal of British troops, and the unification of Ireland.
