Was anybody on the People’s March for Jobs in the early 80s?


It all seems a long time ago now – and yet mass youth joblessness is back with us in Europe. The People’s March for Jobs in 1981 was a very big march streaming into Hyde Park and made up of many young people who had come from all over Britain. Grim economic times but a real gritty determination to fight back in those days. This leaflet may jog some memories.

  1. I was on it from Liverpool. The biggest impact for me was when the police tried to stop us joining up with the Jarrow march. but we were all of the same mind the 2 marches collided with running induced hugs on mass. A magic moment, more than 30 years ago but still awesome.

    ps W
    here is the plaque in London, has it been moved?
