PART OF THE ART OUT OF REVOLUTION FESTIVAL PRESENTED BY PHILOSOPHY FOOTBALL

Three times in the early 1900s London hosted the congresses of Russian Revolutionaries. Hundreds arrived temporarily for the period of those congresses but some lived here semi-permanently in exile, clandestinely conducting their work for the revolution from a safe distance. Here in London they frequented international workers clubs where they mixed freely with immigrant Jewish radicals of the East End who had fled discrimination and persecution under the Tsar. Many of those immigrants closely followed events in their homeland and  a significant number returned in 1917. Local political activists in the East End such as Sylvia Pankhurst and George Lansbury were enthused by developments in Russia. When revolution broke out there were mass celebrations in East London. On this walk you will discover the intimate connections of the East End with the struggles in Russia.

Organised in association with East End Walks, led by David Rosenberg author Rebel Footprints: a Guide to Discoverig London's Radical History.
