Social Unrest: Nelson Riot in 1843

Saturday 24th April 2021

A talk on what has been dismissed as 'social unrest' in the early settlement of Nelson. Was it in fact really workers standing up for their rights after promises made before departing England were not kept. Were shortages of food, decent housing and paid work the real issue? How did the workers experience of similar injustices in England agitate change to remedy their situation. Find what they did, and perhaps there is a legacy here today.
