Congratulations to the folks who recreated the Kinder Scout Trespass today (Sunday 24 April 2016) to fund raise for the Morning Star daily leftwing newspaper! The original action in April 1932 involved many of our readers then - led in large part by Benny Rothman of the Young Communist League (YCL) of Manchester. It still remains one of the most successful acts of civil disobedience in modern British history

As a notable act of resistance, it helped spark the modern movement for rambling. It has been interpreted as the embodiment of "working class struggle for the right to roam versus the rights of the wealthy to have exclusive use of moorlands" to shoot grouse.

Well done all!!
