    TRANSCRIPT: (SEQ. 14): FEATHER: "And I want to say that the Government, the Government, are even trying to make two classes of trade unionists. One class to be licensed. Licensed to speak, providing they speak in accordance with the law and all the others to keep their mouths shut and suffer in silence. But they will never again split this trade union movement into two classes. We shall not accept that there will be a license for one to speak and no license for other people. We're all...never was this trade union movement 30 united in its resistance to attack, so resolute in its determination to fight this government on this bill right to the last ditch."

The demonstration stretched 7 miles (Kms)...long enough so that the first marchers reached their destination at Trafalgar Square while the tail was just leaving the staging point at Hyde Park.

    Mr Vic Feather, head of the Trade Unions Council, addressed the marchers in Trafalgar Square.
