Ghadar Party Plaque

10 Bay Street, Maritime Memorial Park

The Ghadar Party Plaque is for East Indians who lived in Astoria and founded the Ghadar Party at the city's Finnish Socialist Hall in 1913. The Ghardar Party was an organization founded by Punjabi Indians, in the United States and Canada with the aim to liberate India from British rule. The movement began with a group of immigrants known as the Hindustani Workers of the Pacific Coast. This is an important site for members of the Astoria community, tourists from India and Indian communities across the United States.
