They Shall Not Pass – the 75th Anniversary of Cable st

It’s been an amazing weekend commemorating the 75th anniversary of the battle of Cable Street. 

On Saturday we had a public dialogue about our campaign to strengthen the law so that, in the very occasional and extreme circumstances where it is currently possible to ban a march, it will also be possible to ban a static demonstration, or rally.  We do not want the EDL on our streets whether they are marching or standing still. 

Below is a picture of some of the local people who attended, and some councillors. 

Then today we marched to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the battle of Cable street, and I spent the day at the inspiring celebrations at the beautiful Wiltons Music Hall.
