Battle of Cable Street, 80th Anniversary
It was very remiss of me not to mark the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Cable Street on Tuesday this week. So here's a belated post highlighting the beautiful artwork of Dave Binnington Savage, Paul Butler, Ray Walker and Desmond Rochfort who, between 1979 and 1982, created this stunning commemorative mural on the wall of St George's Town Hall, 236 Cable Street, E1. Covering approximately 3,500 square feet, it's hard to do it justice online.
Unfortunately the fight against fascism continues. With typical Tory timing, Theresa May (the cunt) and her party announced at conference this week some of the most stringent right wing plans to ever hit this country, including phasing out foreign employees within the NHS, cutting back on the number of overseas students coming to study here in the UK and demanding employers provide an extensive list of the number of migrant workers within their workforce. With respect to the latter suggestion by Amber Rudd (the cunt) please sign this petition to reject such a fascist proposal from becoming mandatory, along with this one for an open, tolerant Britain.
