Luddites smash weaving machinery

Luddites smash weaving machinery in a Nottingham textile factory. The Luddites were a movement of radical group of English textile workers and weavers in the early 19th century who destroyed weaving machinery as a form of protest. The group was protesting the use of machinery in a "fraudulent and deceitful manner" to get around standard labour practices. The group feared time spent learning the skills of their craft would go to waste as machines would replace their role in the industry. in more recent times, the term Neo-Luddism has emerged to describe opposition to many forms of technology. Date: circa 1812
