The Chartist was a working-class movement, which emerged in 1836. The aim of the Chartists was to gain political rights and influence for the working classes. On the 4th of Nov 1839, Newport brave working class uprose and fought for equal political rights. This month marks the 179th anniversary of the Chartist movement. We raise the questions whether such fight is still needed today and what have we done to challenge inequality, bigotry and xenophobia.
