How to use this source to help you answer the big question   *
Look carefully at this source and consider what it tells you about propaganda produced by the people and the press. You should consider:
* * *
* Ask yourself *
* * *
* What happened in Cardiff? *
* * *
* How can you tell the newspaper was hostile towards the pacifists? *
* * *
* Does this suggest that the account of the Cardiff people's attitude is reliable? *
* * *
* Does this article suggest that the majority of people in Cardiff supported the war effort? *
* * *
* The government devoted a lot of effort to getting people to support the war effort and to criticise pacifists (who opposed the war). Is this source convincing evidence that government propaganda was effective in achieving its aims? *
