ENGELS LIVES IN SALFORD
 


Star date: 11th October 2010

FRED ENGELS IN SALFORD
A talk by Stephen Kingston 
Working Class Movement Library
2pm Wednesday 13th October 2010 Free

Fred Engels, together with his bezzy mate Karl Marx, was responsible for inspiring over fifty revolutions around the world, from Cuba to China. But what has Salford got to do with it? And what's Engels got to do with Salford in 2010?

Wouldn't you like to know… click here.


Friedrich Engels came to Salford in 1842 at age 22 and stayed originally for only two years. But still managed to write a book that shook the country. He came back to Salford in 1850, this time staying for twenty years, during which time he managed to write a small book that shook the world to its very foundations.

He's the one man who can claim to be as big as Jesus and John Lennon… and it all started in Weaste!

Are you ready for Freddy?
