Follow the Chartists and suffragettes and write your own petition to make your voice heard!  This workshop will give a hands-on experience of the most popular way ordinary people made their voice heard before democracy.  If you’ve ever signed an e-petition, come and see how they used to do it!

Dr Henry Miller (University of Manchester) will provide a brief, accessible overview of the history of petitioning right up to the present day.  Part of Parliament Week 2015.
