-- History of Magic exam question (OP31)
Organisations advocating the advancement of goblins rights within the wizarding world
Over the past centuries, various groups have advocated goblin rights, sometimes with violence (OP31).
In the 1990s, The Brotherhood of Goblins (B.O.G.) met with representatives of the Ministry of Magic, hoping to create a Bill of Goblin Rights, but the meeting in Chipping Clodbury degenerated into a riot (DP3).
Oswald Beamish was a pioneer of goblin rights (FW).
Goblin riots took place in the 18th century (OP31).
While the date printed on DP3 is 1 June 1999, the timeframe for these events is 1992-1993.
