Peterloo Massacre

Join us this evening at 6pm to commemorate the Peterloo Massacre which took place 200 years ago this summer, and explore how the press and the public conversation help shape our democracy. Reading, publishing and interpretation all play crucial roles in the struggle for power and representation, today as in 1819.

With new artworks by Robel Temesgen and an introduction to the graphic novel 'Peterloo: Witnesses to a Massacre' by Polyp, Shlunke and Poole, plus interpretations in Amharic and English from local performers.
