  • Los Mártires de Tolpuddle fueron un grupo de trabajadores de Gran Bretaña que en 1834 fueron apresados y condenados por haber hecho un juramento secreto como integrantes de la Sociedad Mutual de Obreros Agrícolas. Los estatutos de esta sociedad eran los de una organización gremial de ayuda mutua, que operaba como una organización solidaria de beneficencia. Sin embargo, al mismo tiempo la Sociedad Mutual de Obreros Agrícolas tenía claros elementos que la caracterizaban como un sindicato de trabajadores. Los Mártires de Tolpuddle fueron en consecuencia sentenciados a la deportación a una colonia penal en Australia. (es)
