March of Thanks

Footage produced by Reuters News Archive shows a march from London’s Hyde Park to the American Embassy in Grovesnor Square by Biafran separatists on September 9, 1967. The event was considered to be a “March of Thanks” to the American government for its stance of neutrality in a conflict in which Federal Nigeria garnered the support of Britain and the Soviet Union.
