The Workman's Neutrality Committee was formed by the Labour Representation League to oppose support for Turkey in the Eastern Europe crisis. In 1876 the Bulgarian people, part of the Ottoman Empire, began an uprising against the Turkish, who responded aggressively and there were rumours of atrocities and massacres. The British Government stance was officially pro-Turkish, but after several independent reports of massacres public opnion in Britian turned against Turkey and the Government withdrew their support. By 1878 Bulgaria had secured independence and become an autonomous nation.
