Storyboard Text

  • In the morning the factory workers go to work.
  • By night the workers leave to go home.
  • This is the perfect time for the Luddites to strike.
  • No to Industrialization!!
  • Due to their vast hatred of machines the Luddites went to parliament to try and get them removed. Instead parliament made it illegal to destroy machinary.
  • The illegalization didn't stop the Luddites from breaking machines. In one instance a big group of Luddites were ambushed by an even larger group of soldiers hiding in a factory.
  • While only a few Luddites were killed in this "battle", many were taken prisoner and later hanged as an example. After this public example the Luddite movement quickly lost support and disappeared.
