Peterloo Bicentenary

Peterloo Bicentenary articles welcome

As the bicentenary of Peterloo approaches we welcome articles about Peterloo itself, but also, broadening the narrative, to include other instances of state violence, or indifference to the well-being of the mass of the population.

Not just the physical attacks on demonstrators but the more subtle repression demonstrated by insanitary housing, unsafe working conditions and the refusal of political means for the majority of women and men to enable them to redress their grievances.

Please send in any articles that you consider will contribute to this theme. Details of how and when to submit articles are on our website at
