Event takes place at the Cable Street Mural, 236 Cable St, London E1 0BL


On 4th October 1936 Sir Oswald Moseley attempted to lead the British Union of Fascists into Cable Street, the heart of the East London docklands, to smash the anti-fascist resistance of the communists, the Jewish and Irish communities. Over 100,000 turned out to stop them, in spite of brutal attacks by thousands of police including on horseback. Their victory, which echoes through the decades, will be remembered on Sunday 3 October in a commemoration at the Cable Street mural, next to St Georges Town Hall, 236 Cable St, London E1 0BL (nearest transport Shadwell DLR). Many organisations will be attending this event. Please try to join us and bring your banners or flags if you have them. We hope to see you there.
