Today is the anniversary. When the state cut down working people for demanding rights and change. 200 years later and the state cuts down working class people with words, derision and insult instead of swords. Nothing has changed. The struggle continues.

A few of the many... Peterloo survivors in their 70s and 80s, photographed in 1884 (as part of the campaign for the Third Reform Bill of that year, another step on the road)... deeply moving to remember what we owe them. 🕯️

The little democracy we have isn't just a part of capitalism, it's a product of political struggle Next time someone tells you the right to vote is an uncontested part of liberal modernity, remind them of and all those who broke the law & died for it, over centuries

If you haven’t seen it yet, set aside some time for Mike Leigh’s phenomenal Peterloo today. Quietly brilliant in its eschewal of a lead protagonist, making the experience of the film as collective as its politics, and a poignant, political tribute

Happy news in Finchley: Major Cartwright ‘the Father of Reform’ has his obelisk restores in time for . Lovely bit of tomb repair by DBR, with input and a parish blessing by Rev Philip Dawson at St Mary at Finchley. It can be done.

‘Rise, like lions after slumber In unvanquishable number! Shake your chains to earth like dew Which in sleep had fallen on you: Ye are many – they are few!" Percy Bysshe Shelley’s The Masque of Anarchy was inspired by the massacre.
