About Cable Street - Riot

On Sunday 4 October 1936, Sir Oswald Mosleys fascists attempted to march through Jewish areas of the East End. The Police did nothing to prevent this, in fact they seemed to be trying to aid the blackshirts by clearing there route for them. Out of desperation left wings, dockers and locals built baracaded and forced the marchers onto Cable Street, which has also been barracaded at Royal Mint Street. A riot followed. This event marked the begining of the decline of Mosley and his Nazis.
