Radical History Network meeting: Resistance to World War One

Wednesday 10th September, 7:30 p.m.

Wood Green Social Club, 3 Stuart Crescent, N22 5NJ
(off the High Rd, near Wood Green tube)

In the build up to the first world war and throughout the war years there
were strikes and industrial disputes, anti-war campaigns, conscientious
objections and mutinies. These are the stories of resistance to the war
that the official commemorations will not tell you.

What can we learn from those inspirational struggles which might help us
to oppose and prevent the obscene wars for profit and power throughout the
world which governments and military blocs are continuing to wage 100
years after the so-called 'war to end all wars'?


Nick Heath (Anarchist Federation) "Resistance to World War One"

Jennifer Bell (Hornsey Historical Society / Haringey First World War Peace
Forum) "We will not fight! -  Conscientious objectors in North London"

PLUS: Discussion on all aspects of local (NE London) resistance to the war
as well as the wider national and international context.
