Global Labour History Network

The Global Labour History Network (GLHN) was founded in 2015 in Barcelona and brings together researchers and research networks in the fields of social and labour history worldwide.

A demonstration or street protest is action by a mass group or collection of groups of people in favor of a political or other cause; it normally consists of walking in a mass march formation and either beginning with or meeting at a designated endpoint, or rally, to hear speakers.

Actions such as blockades and sit-ins may also be referred to as demonstrations. Demonstrations can be nonviolent or violent (usually referred to by participants as "militant"), or can begin as nonviolent and turn violent dependent on circumstances.

In June 2015 a meeting was called upon in Barcelona, Spain, in order to consider the creation of a global network of labour history researchers.
