Saturday 3rd October 2015, 2pm.
Venue: Working Class Movement Library. Free entry
Brian Lavery will talk about his book The Headscarf Revolutionaries: Lillian Bilocca and the Hull Triple-Trawler Disaster
Brian’s book takes readers back to the winter of 1968 when three trawlers from Hull’s fleet sank in rapid succession. One fishwife, Lillian Bilocca, put down her filleting knife, sickened that men died because the authorities failed to bring in the shipping laws that could have saved them. In a few weeks that startled the world, she roused her community and shook the government.
We are also pleased to welcome Hilda Palmer from the Greater Manchester Hazards Centre who will talk about the work of the centre and some current campaigns.
This event has been organised by the Mary Quaile Club. The Working Class Movement Library is located at 51 Crescent Salford M5 4WX. There will be light refreshments served after the talks.
