January the 31st 1919 and 60,000 strikers pour into George Square in Glasgow to protest against mass unemployment and having to work a 57 hour week.
Things soon got out of hand as the police baton charged the crowd. The riot act was read and the leaders arrested.
English soldiers were sent to Glasgow with machine guns placed on the roof of the Post Office and in front of the City Chambers.
To mark the centenary, 3 Chinas Productions are re-enacting the heroic events as well as the great Glasgow humour that saw them survive.
