Relive this epic day step by step. Go back in time on the very streets of this most Mancunian of outrages. Start with the politics, the characters and the day’s events; the charge, the victims and the bloodstained streets, then finish with the legacy outside the Free Trade Hall. See how government betrayed the working classes, how their neighbours betrayed them, and how privilege and power tried to cover up the day and the men and women who took part.

In the year of the Arab dawn go back in time to Manchester's equivalent. Relive the passion of that age, get a deeper insight into the minds of today's oppressed people's; their options, their anxieties. In an age of multi-nationals, huge trading markets, corporate power and the small voice of individuals visit  Shelley's  "Mask of Anarchy". Examine the politics of the age when capitalism first cast its power shadow over the earth, see where you would stand today.
