Interview: “A massacre that changed Britain: does Peterloo still resonate today?”

I did an interview whilst at Fridays For Future last Friday about the Peterloo Massacre that happened here in Manchester. It’s the 200th anniversary today, 16th August 2019.

The article and video looks at the politics and protest of then and now.

Interview with Manchester Climate Monthly.

I did an interview with Manchester Climate Monthly. The first question had me thinking about how long I had been striking and was surprised to see that today is my 13th week and my 3rd big strike.

Here’s a part of my answer to the first question.

Which of the strikes have you been on? What was your favourite thing about them?

I have been on the National strike in February and the Global Strike in March and am going to the strike tomorrow on the 12th of April.
And from the beginning of February, I’ve been going to Fridays for Future protests outside the town hall every week. I hand out leaflets and talk to people about climate change and ask them to come along to strikes and help support us to show that people are worried about climate change and our future.

I really liked this interview as I could think about the answers and I wasn’t rushed, which can sometimes make me very anxious.
