• Short Summary

    George Lansbury makes speech to large gathering of Socialists in Hyde Park.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "London. Labour Day. Thousands demonstrate peacefully and indulge in a 'feast of Oratory' in Hyde Park..."

    London.

    Parade of people parading through London streets carrying Trade Union and Labour Party banners.

    Shots of a large gathering of people waiting to hear speeches. First to speak is Labour Party leader George Lansbury. He makes a speech to the May demonstration about the Solidarity of Labour. Three cheers are given for International Social Democracy. Lansbury is also given a cheer.

    N.B. Old records suggest that this item was followed by one that contrasts the peaceful nature of London's march with one in New York which is presumably less peaceful.
