Resisting The First World War In Camden + Islington

Commemorating the bravery of non-combatants in WWI

When conscription arrived in 1916, it wasn't just serving soldiers who needed to be brave. Ben Copsey of Peace Pledge Union discusses the people who were shunned, imprisoned and tortured for refusing to bear arms. This trawl through the archives focuses on conscientious objectors in Camden and Islington, havens for free thinkers even back then.
