Revolting Councillors Poplar 1921

176 views 1 month ago
July 29 will mark the 93rd anniversary since thousands of people from Poplar marched in protest against a hike in rates charges demanded by the Government. The Poplar Councillors refused to pay and ended up in court and in jail. Among those sent to prison were George Lansbury, Angela Lansbury's Grandfather and women, one of whom was pregnant. It was post WWI with high unemployment and many struggling to survive the desperate economic situation. Descendants of the councillors and lawyer, tell ynuk.tv the story of how their rebellious relatives helped revolutionise rates not only for Poplar but for rest of nation and for generations to come.
