Cable Street and its aftermath – how the Blackshirts tried and failed to build in London’s East End (RS21: Revolutionary Socialism in the 21st Century, October 7, 2016). “Gary McNally argues against a recent trend among historians to dismiss the antifascist demonstration as counterproductive.”

Cable Street – they did not pass. By Patrick Ward (Socialist Worker, Issue 2271, 1 October 2011). “The Battle of Cable Street was a key moment in anti-fascist history when mass working class resistance stopped the Blackshirts.”

Fighting Fascism: From Cable Street 1936 to Tower Hamlets 2011 (Socialist Review, Issue 362, October 2011). “Martin Smith looks at the lessons for the fight against the EDL, while Dave Renton explores the history of Cable Street, where Oswald Mosley’s fascists were stopped 75 years ago.”

By Colin Sparks (International Socialism, No.94, January 1977). “Fourty years ago the British Union of Fascists were pushing hard around the ‘enemy’ of the day – the Jews.
