  • Description

    Item title reads: "Riots on the Rand. Exclusive pictures of earlier strike in Johannesburg - the situation is now well in hand."

    High angle shot of very large procession of men. A banner is carried at the front of the procession which reads: "General Workers Union - Johannesburg, South Africa."

    Various crowds of men at a demonstration, presumably they are listening to a speech. Crowd surges forward and large number of policemen on horses ride in to control the crowd. The policemen use their batons. It looks pretty violent. Last shot shows policemen riding towards a crowd to make them disperse. Industrial unrest.
