Notice of the 2018 Peterloo Massacre Commemoration Rally & Picnic.
This year's event is being organised and hosted by Greater Manchester Association of Trades Union Councils (GMATUC), the representative body for grassroots trades unionists across the Greater Manchester area.
Before this year's event we would like to thank the Peterloo Memorial Campaign for all their untiring work up to this point, both in seeking to secure a fitting memorial to mark the massacre; and throughout the recent past; in bringing people together from across the North West to mark the anniversary of the historic event close to the original site of St. Peter's Field in central Manchester.
The precise event venue has not yet been finalised but will be in a central Manchester location - details will be announced as they become available.
Until the final details are announced please direct all enquiries about this year's event to

The book written by Martin Empson An illustrated talk and book signing
The modern countryside is the result of centuries of environmental change, but also brutal class struggle. While Wat Tyler's Peasants' Revolt is well known, and Jack Cade and Robert Kett are remembered for their rebellions, there are countless lesser known struggles. Martin Empson's new book rescues these forgotten moments of history and places them in the context of the political and economic changes that have taken place over the last 700 years.
