Protestors Demonstrate Against Hunger in Washington, D.C. Ca. 1932Unknown - 1932
Hunger and poverty were widespread during the Great Depression. In December 1932, 3,000 members of the National Unemployed Councils, a confederation of relief groups set up across the country by the Communist Party, marched on Washington, D.C., to protest the problem of hunger in the United States. Earlier that year, Washington had also been set upon by the Bonus Army, a group of World War I veterans who demanded prepayment of a bonus that had been guaranteed them by Congress.
