Henry 'Orator' Hunt (6 November 1773- February 15, 1835), sometimes known as Orator Hunt, was a United Kingdom radical speaker and agitator. He advocated Parliament of the United Kingdom reform and the repeal of the Corn Laws.
He was one of the scheduled speakers at the rally that became the Peterloo Massacre, and the incident cost him more than two years in prison. In 1830 he became a member of Parliament for Preston, but was defeated when standing for re-election in 1833.
