Battle Of Cable Street 4th October

  • Hi All ,
    I am interested in the events surrounding the 4th Oct 1936 and wondered if there were any events commemorating what happened. Is there a procession on the 4th or possibly at the weekend ?

    Digger Skully ?

  • Copying from Wiki as I had no idea what happened on the 4th October 1936...

    The Battle of Cable Street took place on Sunday 4 October 1936 in Cable Street in the East End of London. It was a clash between the Metropolitan Police, overseeing a march by the British Union of Fascists, led by Oswald Mosley, and anti-fascists, including local Jewish, socialist, anarchist, Irish and communist groups. The majority of both marchers and counter-protesters travelled into the area for this purpose. Mosley planned to send thousands of marchers dressed in uniforms styled on those of Blackshirts through the East End, which then had a large Jewish population.­able_Street
