Luddites poster

by Just Seeds and Shaun Slifer

The Luddite insurrections (roughly 1811-1813 or later) are often represented as a misguided, reactionary backlash by simple English peasants to their replacement by more efficient machines. However, the situation can perhaps be better understood as one of the first organized revolts against the age of industrial capitalism in Western Europe. "We petition no more. That won't do. Fighting must," reads this Celebrate People's History poster from the justseeds artists collective.
