  • Description

    Titles read: '"MORE ACTION" DEMAND IN TRAFALGAR SQUARE'.

    London.

    Various shots of 30,000 people packing Trafalgar Square for a "speed up the war" demonstration. Huge portraits of leaders such as Prime Minister Winston Churchill, President Franklin D Roosevelt, Joseph Stalin are displayed. Nice M/Ss of people in the crowd listening to speakers. We are told a key note of the meeting is continued and increased aid for Russia. Brief shots of one of the speakers, a Chinese seaman who was previously a guerilla fighter. General view of the crowd as everyone raises one of their hands.
