With Banners Held HIgh
- Saturday 15 May 2021
A Facebook live event for 2021
Join Unite for a full day celebrating the British labour and trade union movement, which, provoked by generations of struggle, has created a rich cultural heritage. Drawing on historic local and national events that defined the lives of our forefathers and mothers, With Banners Held High embraces cultural forms of expression and celebrates methods of protest through discussion, art, music, poetry, drama, dance and comedy. It is to educate, it is to agitate; it is to fight for consciousness.
