Description

Excerpt from Condemned From the Dock: A Burning Indictment of Capitalism, Being an Authorized Account of the Trial and Sentence of John Maclean, M.A., Including a Verbatim Report of His 75 Minutes' Speech From the Dock

Now then, food and farms. I pointed out to the workers that what was necessary if they stopped work was the getting of food. There had been a shortage; the Govern ment had held up the supplies, for several reasons probably - perhaps to get this rationing passed, in order to have a tight hold on food, and also lest, the people get out of hand in reference to this Man Power Bill. I knew that there was plenty of food in stores in Glasgow, and that the farmers had food stored up in their farms. The farmers have used the war in order to make huge profit for themselves, and then the Government assisted t-heni in connection with the potato regulations; and latterly, at the end of last year the Corn Production Act was passed, not in the interests of the farm labourers, but in the interests of the farmers.
