Waihī marchers

Members of the Millerton Socialist Party join others in marching down Waihī’s main street in support of the miners’ strike in 1912. This was one of the first times that New Zealand workers used marches to generate public support for a specific grievance. Until then pickets and rallies had been their main protest methods.
