Our free Invisible Histories talks will start up again in March – Wednesdays at 2pm:
15 March Trevor Fisher Reclaiming the Blanketeers
March 2017 sees the 200th anniversary of the March of the Blanketeers, probably the first attempt at a protest march from a provincial city to Westminster. Now largely obscure, the precedent once established has been used ever since, and the organisers had devised a tactic which deserves to be put into the spotlight for its continuing importance.

€450.000 for the Digitization of CNT/FAI Archives
The sole remaining archive of a respectable size of the Spanish Civil War is housed at the IISH. It concerns the papers of the anarchist trade union CNT/FAI (1934-1939), that had a large following. In Spain and in all countries, like the Netherlands, from where volunteers joined the International Brigades, many surviving relatives are searching for their lost family members.
