The event, which has been organised by Worcester Trades Union Council, will take place

in the Cornmarket from 11am to 3pm.

Trade unions representing teachers, fire fighters, musicians, local government employees,

health workers and others will have stalls. Groups campaigning on the NHS, anti-racism,

welfare benefits and the cost-of-living crisis will also join the event.

Following on from recent WTUC rallies against the war in Ukraine, there will be a similar

rally in the Cornmarket at 2pm.

The event will feature a photographic exhibition produced to mark the 200th anniversary of

Peterloo. The images, created by photographer and political activist Red Saunders, depict

events in August 1819 when thousands of working people gathered in Manchester to hear

the call for the right to vote. The crowd was attacked and many people killed or injured.

Banners depicting the many activities and campaigns involving local trade unions that

have taken place throughout the year will be on display.

Musical entertainment will be provided by local musicians

The event is open to members of the public
