The Battle of Cable Street - 75 years on

This October marks a great anniversary in the history of anti-fascism in Britain, as David Rosenberg notes in an article revisiting Cable Street. Incidentally, 'the Battle of Cable Street' featured as a rather surprising moment of prime-time Xmas TV viewing last year thanks to the inclusion of a portrayal of British Union of Fascist sympathisers in the remake of Upstairs, Downstairs...while see also this interview with Max Levitas, a veteran of the Battle of Cable Street.
