FLASHBACK: Riots Across United States of America During the Great Depression (Video)

I have never seen any of this above video footage of riots throughout the Midwest and Northeast States in United States of America during the 1930s. In fact, it looks similar to the some of the protests that are occurring in the Occupy Movement that has spread around the world in recent weeks. The protesters in the 1930s video appear to be protesting and destroying the means of production (manufacturing) whereas the Occupy movement appear to be protesting the means of financing (banking). The 1930s videos also appear to be more violent.

I highly recommend taking a few minutes and watching a bit of American history.
