Commemorating the Battle of Cable Street

What better way to celebrate the fact that the racist EDL were blocked from marching through East London by mass anti-fascist action at the start of this month than by remembering the 75th anniversary of The Battle of Cable Street which blocked Oswald Mosley's British Union of Fascists attempt to march through the East End on 4th October 1936? To mark the occasion, Philosophy Football have done what they do best and produced a nice T-shirt.

The battle of Cable road turned into an insurrection that happened on Sunday four October 1936 in Cable road in the East quit of London. The hit defeat of Nazi sympathizer Oswald Mosley's march via the East quit, referred to as the battle of Cable Avenue, is being venerated this yr through marches, talks and different events in this nook of London.
