Today is the 200th anniversary of what has come to be called the 
Peterloo massacre.  On 16 August 1819, 60,000 working people gathered at 
St Peter’s Field in Manchester England to demonstrate for the right to 
vote, against the terrible conditions and pay of factory workers and for 
the right to organise at the workplace, among a host of other injustices.
