    Demonstration by Red Front during election

    Overview

    Description
    Demonstration by Red Front during election campaign. A low aerial shot of people parading down a street, some of whom play instruments. Ground level shots of people marching with signs and banners, including a poster of Lenin, and children with letter signs spelling out "Krieg dem Kriege". A mechanical sign of a Nazi hitting worker on the head, or perhaps a communist hitting a worker on the head (?). Many signs indicate the communists' objection to the building of Panzerkreuzer, or "pocket" battleships. Germany was allowed to build these ships in accordance with the Treaty of Versailles. The ships were armed but were cruisers rather than actual battleships. A woman's organization is shown marching in the demonstration, and a sign that says "away with article 218", a reference to the article in the German constitution outlawing abortion. People watch the demonstration from the balcony of a coffee house; it is not clear whether they are simply spectators or supporters of the communists. Signs in German and Russian exhort the proletariat of all nations to unite, and identify the organization as the Berlin-Brandenburg youth league. Demonstrators march into the camera. A crowd holding signs cheers three times. More shots of the rally, people marching with flags, and a brief shot of girls holding flags and singing.
