Children's strikes in 1911 - Dave Marson

School children in Hull on strike in 1911 "for shorter hours and no stick"

Dave Marson's excellent 1973 pamphlet on the little-known mass walkouts of schoolchildren in the UK and Ireland in 1911, the same year that saw widespread industrial unrest and strikes. Their demands included shorter hours and an end to corporal punishment in the form of the cane and the strap.
