about this item

In October 1932, the streets of Belfast were gripped by vicious and widespread rioting that lasted the best part of a week. Thousands of unarmed demonstrators fought extended pitched battles against heavily-armed police. Unemployed workers and, indeed, whole working-class communities, dug trenches and built barricades to hold off the police assault. The event became known as the Outdoor Relief Riotone of a very few instances in which class sympathy managed to trump sectarian loyalties in a city famous for its divisions.

Seán Mitchell is a founding member of the People Before Profit. He was the first person to stand for election under the party's banner.
