Wednesday 23 May at 7.30 pm at Bishopsgate Institute
London’s political history is entwined with the lives of its people. The city’s poor and immigrant population has shaped its history and identity over the ages, from apprentices closing the city gates on Charles I in the 1640s to modern fights against fascism and racism in Cable Street and Notting Hill. Taking you into an unofficial, half-hidden and often undocumented world of pamphleteers, agitators, exiles, demonstrations and riots, John Rees and Lindsey German reveal the people and places in which radical ideas have been nurtured and revolutions planned.
Lindsey German is a socialist writer and activist and convenor of the Stop the War Coalition.
Newham Bookshop is the official bookseller at this event.
