Q.:- Describe the cause of the ‘Silesian -weavers’ uprising. Comment on the viewpoint of the journalist.

 

Answer:-

The cause of the Silesian weaver’s uprising was the cheating of the weavers by the contractors. In 1845, the weavers raised a revolt against the contractors who used to supply them raw material to weave textiles in finished form. The contractors drastically reduced their payments.



The viewpoint of the journalist Wilhelm Wolft for this uprising was as fellows-¬†Weaver’s crowd reached the house of the contractor and demanded higher wages. They were not treated well, so a group of the crowd entered the contractors house forcibly and destroyed the furniture, window panes, plundered it. This shows that the viewpoint of the journalist was biased against the weavers and in favour of the contractor. On the other hand, the journalist did not understand the root cause of the uprising. He did not understand the poverty of weavers.
