Description: "04/03/1970: Anti-Lenin rally in Toronto. The demonstration was planned by 300 member Ukrainian Student Club of York University. Meanwhile newspaper reports also indicated 400 anti-Communist demonstrators and eggs were thrown and some spat upon the people there. The Edmund Burke Society (EBS) was also involved. Inside, the EBS members overturned tables and battled guests and police while being ejected from a banquet honoring the 100th anniversary of Lenin's birth in Toronto. A smokebomb was hurled and a Red Flag burned outside the meeting. It led to one injury. Police said no arrests were made. They denied a claim by a member of the EBS that he was stabbed in the shoulder or back, while being thrown out. Police say the wounds were caused when he was dragged across glass littered floor. Ten EBS members attended."
