Pupils protest against their schools, South Bank. The Schools' Action Union formed among pupils in London to protest against school meals, detention, caning and uniform. 'Pupil power' had arisen in a number of schools, and word spread to other London schoolchildren. This gathering in the South Bank was not the first incidence of pupils 'striking' from school. Ginger Finch, a ringleader at Rutherford School, Marylebone was charged by police for his part in the protest.
