This march was based on the increasingly successful marches from Aldermaston in the U.K. during the early 1960s. They were essentially peace marches protesting about the proliferation of nuclear weapons. This march in Brisbane during Easter 1964 has essentially the same purpose. ASIO targetted peace movements, anti nuclear groups and those opposed to U.S. bases in Australia suspecting they were all fronts for the Communist Party. In this film placards from the Union of Australian Women can be seen and these women were suspected of being a front for Communism. ASIO also targetted the World Council of Churches, the Quakers (Society of Friends) who were pacifists, and a variety of organistions advocating women's liberation.
