  • Description

    A procession of nearly 2,000 people marched through the main streets of Glasgow, May 7, carrying anti H-bomb banners and slogans in a mass gesture of protest against nuclear weapons. Police struggled to clear a way through the traffic for the demonstrators, as, headed by 5 members of Parliament and twelve Glasgow City councillors, they marched up the centre of Glasgow's busy Saucheiehall Street.

    Many slogans warned against the dangers of drinking milk and some proclaimed: "You've never had it so radio-actively good." After the parade, the Rev. Clifford Macquire of the Trinity Congregational church told his audience that: "Peace must be given legs - we win or we die, that is the object of this afternoon's exercise".
