The General Strike - Elephant & Castle Featured 1 Jun 2012 Print

The General Strike - Elephant & Castle

Burnt out bus incident at the Elephant & Castle, showing a portion of the bus on the left while mounted policemen control the crowds. In support of a strike by coal miners over the issue of threatened wage cuts, the Trades Union Congress called a General Strike in early May 1926. The strike only involved certain key industrial sectors (docks, electricity, gas, railways) but, in the face of well-organised government emergency measures and lack of real public support, it collapsed after nine days. Date: 1926
