Steps Against War: Resistance to World War 1 in Bedminster
UK delivery £4.40 - Free delivery on orders over £60!
In World War 1 there were at least 40 conscientious objectors in Bedminster, as well as others who resisted the war and conscription.
Fred Berriman took an uncompromising stand and faced repeated prison sentences.
Annie Chappell co-ordinated a network of support for objectors.
William Livingston went on the run in Scotland with London anarchists.
George Barker and Walter Told excavated a secret chamber beneath a bike shop to hide objectors and deserters.
These individuals were part of a network of neighbours, workmates, families and comrades who stood together and refused to take their part in the war machine.
Steps Against War is a microhistory of resistance in a working-class district of south Bristol, together with two self-guided history walks.
