17th January 1915, Anarchist Lucy Parsons organises a hunger march of 15,000 people through Chicago. They unfurled banners that read “Hunger” and “Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread” but the march had barely started when the cops cracked down with their batons and fired shots over the heads of the protestors. Lucy was arrested for distributing seditious literature and inciting a riot.

"Is there aught we hold in common
With the greedy parasite
Who would lash us into serfdom
And would crush us with his might?
Is there anything left to us
But to organise and fight?
The Union makes us strong!
Solidarity Forever."
