    Mob attempting to break into church where pacifists are held up.

  • Description

    Mob besieges pacifists. Location of events unknown.

    World War One; demonstrations; riots. a mob is gathered outside a church where pacifists have gone for safety. Mostly men in crowd but a few women & children. Pan along over crowd. Some of them are trying to break into the building at various places -- battering the door with an axe; breaking windows. A few policemen 'guarding' hanging out; maybe trying to control them a bit; but no real fight going on between police and crowd. Guess they didn't believe in conscientious objectors in those days. Violence.
