Trevor Fisher talk - 'Reclaiming the Blanketeers'

Event location: Working Class Movement Library

Date: 15th Mar 2017

Event time: 14:00 to 15:00

March 2017 sees the 200th anniversary of the March of the Blanketeers, probably the first attempt at a protest march from a provincial city to Westminster. Now largely obscure, the precedent once established has been used ever since, and the organisers had devised a tactic which deserves to be put into the spotlight for its continuing importance.

This talk is part of the Invisible Histories series - all welcome, admission free, light refreshments afterwards.
