70th Anniversary Of The Battle Of Cable Street: Street Celebrations
Quote:
On 4th October 1936, people in the east end of London stopped Oswald Mosley and his British Union of Fascists marching through Cable Street, in Stepney, then a mainly Jewish area. The Spanish Civil War slogan was widely used: They Shall Not Pass - No Pasaran!

The Cable Street Group, and Alternative Arts are planning a commemorative day. The Festival will include a procession, street theatre, music, singers, an exhibition of photographs from 1936 and from more recent events, as well as stalls. This event takes place in Cable St, Whitechapel.

Date: 08 October 2006
Times: 12pm - 4pm
Admission: FREE - just turn up in Cable St on the day.
