THE BATTLE OF CABLE STREET The 4th of October 2016 marks the 80th anniversary of the day that Jews, communists, trade unionists, Labour party members, Irish Catholic dockersand the people of the East End of London united in defiance of Sir Oswald Mosley’s British Union of Fascists and refused to let them march through their streets.

Shouting the Spanish civil war slogan “No pasaran” – “They shall not pass” – more than 300,000 people turned back an army of Blackshirts. Their victory over racism and anti- semitism on Sunday October 4th 1936 became known as the Battle of Cable Street and encapsulated the British fight against a fascism that was stomping across Europe.

THE BOXING CLUB is a collective of artists, activists and cultural producers and one of the long-standing organizations at Limehouse Town Hall. We volunteer our time to support the development and promotion of off-centre cultural activities at the Town Hall that challenge and disrupt conventions and the status quo. https://www.facebook.com/LTHbclub/?fref=ts
