03: First Civil Rights March
Following on from events at Caledon, two thousand people marched in Tyrone from Coalisland to Dungannon in a protest for civil rights.
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.
