Event description
A unique historical walk in one of UK's vibrant multi cultural towns exploring its political and cultural landmarks and life changing events

About this Event

The special walk is part of a series of events organised by an umbrella group - Southall Resists 40 - consisting of local community organisations to mark the 40th anniversary of the death of school teacher Blair Peach in April 1979. Peach had attended an anti racist demonstartionn against the far right National Front. He was almost certainly killed by the Metropoolitan Police Special Patrol Group but no one has ever been charged for his murder. The police also arrested over 700 peopole within hours and 345 peaceful demonstrators were charged with variuos criminal charges and tried in jury less courts chaired by special magistrates flown in from Northern Ireland.

The justice campaign around the 1979 events attracted international and mass support, and when the far right returned to the town in July 1981, local young people organised to defeat them ushering a new era in anti racist politics.
