Chartism was a working class movement for political reform in Britain in the early 19th century which took its name from "the People's Charter" of 1838. On 10 April 1848, the Chartist Convention organised a mass meeting on Kennington Common (now Kennington Park). As many as 150,000 may have attended. The aim was to form a procession to present a petition to Parliament against the lack of representation of the working class.
