"The Battle Of Cable Street"
1936, Europe’s facing fascists.
England has Mosley and his black shirted army.
A provocative march through Jewish east London
Protected by police, defied by the population.
We believe in equality, every man is free... marching as we sing old songs.
"We'll hang Oswald Mosley on a sour apple tree... when the red revolution comes".
"I was moved to tears to see bearded Jews and Irish Catholic dock workers,
standing up together against the hated black shirts.
I shall never forget that as long as I live,
How working-class people could get together to oppose the evil of racism."
