We walked to the Annie Kenney statue in Oldham town centre. We marched around the statue, just like she would have done on her campaign marches. Then we held up our placards and marched through Oldham shouting our messages! For example "Everyone is equal", "Votes for women", "Be kind". We had a fantastic time!
