From Local to Global: the north’s role in peace & co-operation


Dr  Peter van den Dungen sends information about the annual peace history conference which this year, for the first time, will take place in Manchester at Friends Meeting House on Friday 9th and The People’s History Museum on Saturday 10th November, 2012.



The event is being organised by the Movement for the Abolition of War, co-founded by Bruce Kent, and peace organisations active in the north of England and the People’s History Museum.

From the 1960s the Trade Union, Labour and Co-operative History Society formed a small collection and between 1975 and 1986 ran a museum in Limehouse Town Hall in London.  The internationally important collection now includes the Labour Party archive, along with collections of the Trades Union Congress, Communist party of Great Britain, Suffragists and Suffragettes and the co-operative movement . It was in storage until the Greater Manchester authorities made a funding offer.  A new trust was created and the People’s History Museum re-opened in 1990, initially at 103 Princess Street. More . . .
