  • Extended description

    On 2 November 1968, John Hume and Ivan Cooper lead members of DCAC (Derry Citizen's Action Committee) along the intended route of the 05 October 1968 march.

    Loyalists at Ferryquay Gate try to block the route.

    Marchers sing "We shall overcome... we stand hand in hand" during the march and chant "one man, one vote".

    It was intended that the march would consist of 15 committee members only. However, up to 2,000 sympathisers turned out in support.

    The march began along Duke Street, Derry, and proceeded to the Diamond. A group of Loyal Citizens of Ulster, led by Major Ronald Bunting, wearing a military tunic tried to block the march at Ferryquay Gate.
