STRIKE COMMITTEE

Commemorating the Matchgirls Strike of 1888

Help us get them a statue

WHY?

 

There is no public statue to honour the Matchgirls

 

The Matchgirls’ success was the  beginning of New Unionism

 

The Strike played a key role in labour history. Its legacy is reflected in Friedrich Engel's words:

“… the light jostle needed for the entire avalanche to move”

MORE?

In addition to a statue, we are commemorating the Matchgirls through:

Memorials    Education    Descendant’s Stories    Theatre & Film    Poetry & Prose    Art     Music    Community Events

CAN YOU HELP US?
