May Day Marches by Professor Chris Wrigley
From Hayley Cotterill on November 13th, 2013
Professor Chris Wrigley discusses the history of May Day protests. He explains how the first organised marches in 1890 were linked to centenary celebrations for the French Revolution. He describes how 1 May was used from that date to stage protest marches, with different issues being raised over the years in different countries.
The exhibition ran from 20 September 2013 to 5 January 2014.
