Description

An anti-Tory demonstration against youth unemployment at Ulster Street. The Young Socialists demand jobs for the young. The Northern Ireland Labour Party took part in the protest and later a contingent would visit Russia. Some leaders of the Young Socialists, including Cyril Toman, would go on to be a founding member of the People’s Democracy group. 

Notes

Cyril Toman was a political activist in Northern Ireland. 

Toman attended Queen's University Belfast, where he joined the Labour Club, and also the Belfast Willowfield branch of the Northern Ireland Labour Party (NILP). He visited the Soviet Union as the group's representative in 1964.
