The May Day march is one that ASIO covered every year in Melbourne and Sydney and often in other cities. The organisations marching would attract intelligence interest. From the perspective of hindsight, these films are an invaluable insight into the nature of dissent in Australia at a given time. Watch a few of these films, check the year and see what was foremost in the minds of the marchers. This one is 1956. The Olympic Games were about to happen in Melbourne. This footage is shot from the upper floor of the old Town Hall Hotel on the north east corner of the intersection of George and Park St, Sydney.
