Radical History Day

Radical History Day poster A4 HiDefPortsmouth has a rich history of dissent, rebellion and protest—yet all too often it is hidden from our view. From the battle to keep common land to women campaigning for the vote, from mutinous sailors to the fight against racism, the past struggles of local people are a source of huge inspiration and interest. Portsmouth Socialist Network invites you to a day dedicated to the radical history of our city.

Through the day there will be talks on:

The Spithead Mutiny

The Battle of Southsea

The Suffragettes

Lindy Delapenha – Portsmouth Football Club’s first black player

This is a totally free event (although donations are always welcome!), and people are welcome to drop in at any point during the day. There’ll be tea and coffee, food and things for children to do as well. See you Saturday!
