10th Sept – Resistance to World War One: Radical History Network meeting

Radical History Network meeting: Resistance to World War One

In the build up to the first world war and throughout the war years there were strikes and industrial disputes, anti-war campaigns, conscientious objections and mutinies. These are the stories of resistance to the war that the official commemorations will not tell you.

What can we learn from those inspirational struggles which might help us to oppose and prevent the obscene wars for profit and power throughout the world which governments and military blocs are continuing to wage 100 years after the so-called ‘war to end all wars’?

Wednesday 10th September, 7:30pm
Wood Green Social Club, 3 Stuart Crescent, N22 5NJ
(off the High Rd, near Wood Green tube)

Speakers:

Nick Heath (Anarchist Federation) “Resistance to World War One”

Jennifer Bell (Hornsey Historical Society / Haringey First World War Peace Forum) “We will not fight! – Conscientious objectors in North London”

PLUS: Discussion on all aspects of local (NE London) resistance to the war as well as the wider national and international context.
