"The word "democracy" has been tarnished by the politicians who
benefit from its Parliamentary form.
But do not forget that people
fought and died for democracy, for the right of universal suffrage.
The Peterloo Massacre was one such event but the calls for freedom,
justice and democracy were meet with murder and suppression.
shameful object that seeks to serve as a commemorative plaque to this
event hides the struggle of working people, it hides the urgency of
their demands and the brutality of the state.
To fail to refer to the
massacre, to fail to refer to the deaths and instead skip over these
events is an act of historical vandalism akin to Stalin airbrushing
dissidents out of photographs."
Mark Thomas, comedian
