Dubois/Sławomira Streets

On 17 December 1970, at around midday, the militiamen standing across Dubois Street sought to stop and disperse the workers marching from the Shipyard towards the Communist Party headquarters. As a result of a brutal clash with the demonstrators, supported by local residents, the blockade was overcome. The militia’s vehicle with a tear-gas launcher was captured and set on fire. This image often accompanies the story of Szczecin December 1970.
