About this event

A TALK BY ROB SEWELL

The revolutionary traditions of the British working class are glossed over by the establishment. One such tradition is that of the Chartists. Decades before the formation of the TUC, the British working class dramatically entered onto the stage of history, threatening the ruling class with a mass insurrectionary movement and a general strike. In the process, the Chartists succeeded in building the political party of the working class in history, which drew the support of the young Marx and Engels.

Rob Sewell, author and editor of Socialist Appeal (journal of the International Marxist Tendency), presents Chartist Revolution which delves into this radical episode in British history, led by William Lovett, who is buried in Highgate Cemetery.
