Wakefield Socialist History Group
There is an oft-repeated saying along the lines of "If you don`t learn from history, you are doomed to repeat past mistakes". In recognition of this, there has been increasing interest in this subject during recent years and a number of similar groups have appeared around the country. Following successful pilot events events such as a Featherstone Massacre commemorative guided walk [07/9/13] and the Dublin Lock Out centenary commemoration [19/10/13] , Wakefield Socialist History Group was formally established on Saturday 26th October 2013.
There is no membership. The group is open to anyone
interested in the class struggle and the fight against oppression
and who is generally on the Left politically. It is non-sectarian
and not linked with any particular party.
The focus has varied from local to international and
"history" has been interpreted very broadly to include events
which are still unfolding today as well as those that happened
decades or centuries ago. When we look back to earlier
times, we always have regard to the relevance of those events to
our own time.
