In light of current events…..

Peter Kropotkin. 1882.

A week after speaking at the Durham Miners Big Meeting ( miners gala). July 1882.

Addressing a packed crowd at Nelson St lecture rooms, Westgate rd, Newcastle Upon Tyne.

“It is in Newcastle that a Russian revolutionary writer has, for the first time, found the means of disclosing in an English daily paper, the true state of Russia; and it is, again, in Newcastle that i have found for the first time the honour of addressing a large English audience, to relate, in plain words, the true state of Russia.”

source…   Newcastle Weekly Chronicle 8.7.1882.

  1. I am trying to find out whether Kropotkin either lived or stayed in Gateshead. Possibly at Home House the Dodds sisters home.
