Overview

This six-week course will look at some protest movements in the twentieth century in Wales. We will explore influential events and characters in our history. There will be an opportunity to look at the history of the quarrymen battling for their union in their long strike in Penrhyn 1901-1903 and also the fight by the Suffragettes over women's' right to vote at the start of the twentieth century.
We'll also explore the story about the drowning of Capel Celyn in 1965 to create a reservoir for Liverpool which became a powerful symbol in Wales; the establishment in 1962 and history of Cymdeithas yr Iaith (the Welsh Language Society) and the effort to secure rights of the language and the Beasleys who fought bravely over having official documents in Welsh.
There will be a chance to learn about the main events - their causes, characters and consequences - through a variety of resources and there'll be an opportunity to discuss these turbulent events in our history and what they mean to us today. Part 2 of the course will carry on straight away by looking at more protest events in the twentieth century in the following seven weeks.
