Whilst Members of Parliament have fought for change within political systems, activists throughout history have fought outside of democratic processes and sometimes outside of the law. On this special Radical Late, the Museum welcomes Shami Chakrabati MP, Niku Archer from activist group Sisters Uncut, and suffragette historian June Purvis to debate the most effective methods of campaigning. They will be discussing the work of pressure groups at the moment as well as asking the quaestion, what, in our modern political climate, is more effective? Your vote or your voice?
This event is part of the People’s History Museum’s series Radical Lates held every second Thursday of the month and is suitable for ages 16+. As well as the discussion the whole Museum will be open till 8 pm including The Left Bank cafe and bar. Entry is free but a donation to the Museum of £5 is suggested.
