Chartist Demonstration tea towel

Chartist Demonstration tea towel

Chartism was a working class movement for political reform in Britain in the first half of the 19th century which took its name from "the People's Charter" of 1838. On 10 April 1848, the Chartist Convention organised a mass meeting on Kennington Common (land subsequently enclosed and renamed Kennington Park, perhaps to discourage civil disobedience). As many as 150,000 may have attended. The aim was to form a procession to present a petition to Parliament against the lack of representation of the working class. A political gift that captures a significant event in Britain's history.
