On 16 November 1968, the DCAC (Derry Citizen's Action Committee) lead a march through the city of Derry.
Police are pictured setting up a cordon to block the street while protestors march with arms linked down the street.
At the police barrier, Ivan Cooper proclaims the protesters' objectives. Michael Canavan, John White, William Breslin and Dermot McClenaghan breach the police cordon. Protestors demand their civil rights to march down any streets of the city and sing "We shall overcome".
A number of protestors voice their views and demands over megaphones. The main body of the march then crosses Craigavon Bridge and proceeds down John Street.
