Rebels, Strikers and Anti-Fascists
(can be tailored from 1.5 to 2.5 hours)
In the struggle for better lives in the East End, sweatshop workers downed tools, bakers formed workers’ cooperatives, councillors went to prison, people built barricades to stop fascists and police were pelted with kitchen implements. On this walk you will discover who was agitating and rioting and refusing to accept injustice and inequality, where they protested, and what they achieved.
This walk combines elements from David’s stand-alone East End tours and adds material about local struggles waged by the Bengali community in the 1970s against racism and fascism.
