Struggle or Starve: Working-Class Unity in Belfast's 1932 Outdoor Relief Riots

£14.99

Manufacturer: Haymarket Books

Product Information

"In October 1932, the streets of Belfast were gripped by rioting. Railing at the indignity of the state's "relief " programs of poverty pay and hard outdoor labour, thousands of unarmed demonstrators fought extended pitched battles against heavily armed police, digging trenches and building barricades to hold off the assault.  The event became known as the Outdoor Relief Riot - one of very few instances in which class sympathy managed to trump sectarian loyalties".

Authored by Seán Mitchell, published by Haymarket Books, 2017.
