A unique account of communist and antifascist activity in London’s East End in the 1930s and 1940s, this resource describes an important part of 20th-century working-class history. Detailing the Battle of Cable Street in 1936, as well as the events leading up to the famous event, this history describes how the battle was part of the wider campaigning work of the Communist Party and working-class movement in the East End. Vividly bringing the past to life, important issues such as rent strikes, wartime struggles for equal rights and civil defense, and the momentous events of the 1945 election campaign are addressed at length.
