Subject: Re: [ha-Safran] Battle of Cable Street October 4, 1936
There was a piece on BBC World Service last week commemorating the Battle of
Cable Street. It included interviews with participants. The emphasis was on
the Communists – many who were Jews – who organized the action and the Jewish
participation was mentioned only peripherally.

May I suggest that you visit http://www.cablestreet.uk/#.V_RzrlIlfPs.mailto , a
website where details of the Battle of Cable Street are chronicled.
The world at large, including the Jewish world at large, does not appear to be
aware of this dramatic event that stopped the then ascendant British fascists
in their tracks.
The British Union of Fascists under the full protection of the British police
had announced their intention to march in their black-shirted, jack-booted
uniforms, through London’s East End Jewish enclave. The London East End Jews
said NO! and they, with the help of other local anti-fascists, won the bloody
battle that ensued.
When Jews were being browbeaten in a Europe that was being overrun by Nazism
and fascism, the East London Jews stoodh proud.
