A picture from the archives. In the early 1980's there were many National Front demonstrations in Rochdale. This is one of them. Sorry about the quality, but it shows about 200 - 300 NF demonstrators in the centre of Rochdale, at the bus stop at the top of John Street/Yorkshire street. Most were Rochdale folk.

The Police then as now, were no friends of nationalism, so an amount of subterfuge was needed/used to have these demonstrations .
