90th Anniversary of the Outdoor Relief Scheme

90 Years Since the Outdoor Relief Strike: History Repeated?

October marks the 90th anniversary of the Outdoor Relief Strike, a struggle that brought about the momentary unity of the working class across Belfast. Join the Belfast Trades Council as we reflect on the history and legacy of the ODR Strikes, and explore some of the parallels with the crisis of modern capitalism.
