The Battle of Cable Street
It's Sunday today, which Sebastien of Trier has declared "Graffiti Sunday", and Paris has had a few riots, too. So I thought I'd combine the two themes.
I was moaning the other day how little real passion there is in British politics, compared say to the French. But it was not always thus. In 1936 Oswald Moseley - England's very own fascist would-be leader - was in stirring up trouble. There was a showdown at a march in Cable Street, and the Police attempted to clear the way for the fascists to march. It turned into a full blown riot, and the good news is, the good guys won. This mural commemorates the event.
