Died aged 0

The mass trespass of Kinder Scout, also called the Kinder mass trespass, was an act of wilful trespass by ramblers and members of the Young Communist League, the youth branch of the Communist Party of Great Britain (CPGB). It was undertaken at Kinder Scout, in the Peak District of Derbyshire, England, on 24 April 1932, to highlight the fact that walkers in England and Wales were denied access to areas of open country. The trespass was largely organised by Benny Rothman, secretary of the British Workers' Sports Federation (a youth branch of the Young Communist League), in retaliation to the expulsion of the group from Bleaklow three weeks earlier.
