1932 depression protests: Auckland (2 o 3)

A picket guards a shopfront after unemployed demonstrators ran down Queen Street, Auckland, smashing windows and looting shops. The protesters' actions followed the police batoning of their leader, Jim Edwards, at an unemployment protest outside Auckland’s town hall on 14 April. Hundreds were injured and dozens were arrested in the fracas, which an official enquiry blamed on the protesters.
