A Mount Pleasant Radical History Walk

Radical Islington is caught up in a flurry of action. Not only have we got a benefit gig in the pipeline this April (see post below), but on 29 April, one of our member will be giving a free historical walk of Mount Pleasant (the Royal Mail site in the south of Islington) and the surrounding area. On the walk you will hear about the workhouse, Georgian and Victorian prison regimes, local radicalism, postal service mechanisation and underground railways, the Calthorpe riots, 19th century police kettling techniques. All welcome.

Radical Islington Benefit Gig!

We're holding a benefit gig on 21 April, at The Victoria, Dalston, to fund the Islington Against Austerity Day we're putting on later this year. Come and dance!
