    Background: Printers on strike at Watford, England - July 7 - marched through the streets to the Town Hall for a mass meeting.

    As they proceeded along the High Street, they passed the offices of the local newspaper, "West Herts and Watford Observer".

    This newspaper, with only the Editor and two juniors remaining of its editorial staff of eighteen, had published its issue of June 27 despite strong picketing and attempts by strikers to stop its distribution.

    As the marchers with banners and placards passed the "Observer" offices, they demonstrated by chanting slogans, booing, and shouting.
