Hugo Blanco will speak at Oxford Town Hall on Thursday.

Mr Blanco is a leader of the Peruvian peasant movement and has been politically active since the 1950s.

In the 1960s he played a central part in the ‘Land or Death’ peasant uprising, after which he was captured and sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Recently he has been at the forefront of a struggle to save Peru's Amazon rainforest.

He is visiting Oxford as part of a tour of the UK organised by the Green Left and Socialist Resistance.

The meeting starts at 7.30pm.
