Poll Tax Rebellion

Published on 31 March 1992

The gripping inside story of the biggest mass movement in British history, which at its peak involved over 17 million people. Using a combination of photos, text and graphics, and drawing on the voices of activists and non-payers it describes the everyday organisation of local anti-poll tax groups, and chronicles the demonstrations and riots leading up to the battle of Trafalgar – showing how the courts were blocked, bailiffs resisted and the Poll Tax destroyed.
