This report captures the Derry Civil Rights demonstration in full swing.

Inspector William Meharg informs the protesters that while they are free to protest, they cannot enter a restricted area. Ivan Cooper, addressing the protestors through a megaphone, hopes that the marchers will act in a responsible manner and outlines why they are marching.

Led by Gerry Fitt and Eddie McAteer, they proceed along the prohibited route. McAteer, Currie and others get through the police cordon. In Duke Street, protesters remonstrate with police and Pat Douglas is hit by a police officer.

The RUC force the crowd back with indiscriminate use of batons.
