Interview with Reverend John Powis
QUESTION 15
INTERVIEWER:

Um, could you talk a little bit about the scene outside of the schools during the strike, that fall of '68? What did you see? A particular incident that really came to mind.

JOHN POWIS:

During the strike of '68, what I remember most were the situations in front of 271. And I have to say that it's, uh, I often think of this, I think of young children walking into the school, uh, very intent, very interested in going into school and being there and having their books and, and knowing, knowing what they were up to, uh, parents being there and a tremendous amount of police.
