Welcome to radical Glasgow's Strugglepedia

Glasgow's working class history is a history of struggle and sacrifice not found in the school curriculum. The establishment would rather we forget our own past and deny the suffering and sacrifice of those who created that history. This site is dedicated to remembering and recording their selfless struggle for a better life for all. Add your stories to this site and record Glasgow's radical history here so that we and future generations can learn from and carry forward that radical tradition. If you prefer send your stories toSpirit of Revolt to be posted on this site. It's their future or it's our future and the future will never be ours if we don't remember our past. Radical Glasgow's Strugglepedia also works in conjucntion with the Spirit of Revolt archive, housed at the Mitchell Library, Glasgow. Return to Radical Glasgow.
