The Battle of Cable Street Radical Tea Towel
This tea towel design commemorates the 1936 protest against Fascist leader Oswald Mosley who planned to march his Blackshirt thugs through the heart of East London, then home to a large number of Jewish residents. 20,000 anti-fascists took to the streets, determined to prevent the march. They barred the way with road blocks – including a bus and a tram – wielding makeshift weapons: sticks, rocks, chair legs, rotten vegetables. Children rolled marbles under the hooves of the police horses.
