Commemorative events bring out the best and worst in historians. Some have managed to write the history of the Battle of Cable Street without the Communists. Fortunately, on hand, is Steve Silver anti fascist veteran and chronicler of the struggle in the 1930s. You can now buy his new pamphlet. FInd out what really happened.

On 4 October 1936 the East End of London’s Jewish community and its allies blocked the streets to prevent Oswald Mosley and his British Union of Fascists marching through them. What happened in one narrow street in Stepney – Cable Street – proved to be the turning point for the day and forced the fascists to abandon their march.
This 28-page full colour publication covers the events surrounding the greatest anti-fascist victory that has occurred on British soil and the legacy it has left. Alongside rare photographs and other material, it includes an interview with Battle of Cable Street veteran Max Levitas and others who have been involved with remembrance of the great day over the years.
