First Civil Rights March

Among the groups who organised the march were the Campaign for Social Justice  and the Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association (NICRA). Loyalists organised a counter-demonstration in Dungannon.

In response, the RUC ordered a ban on the civil rights protesters entering and holding a meeting at the Market Square. The meeting was eventually held in Thomas Street while police separated both sets of protesters.

A few days later, this march was followed by a 100 strong protest at Guildhall in Londonderry.
