30 year old campaign poster told the truth…


A poster produced by leftwing campaigners 30 years ago. Now, after 3 decades finally the state admits the police murdered our comrade Blair Peach on the Southall Anti-Nazi League protest. But still they won’t name names! Good that the police don’t bash innocent demonstrators in the head these days, with the mass media colluding and branding the protestors as the ‘violent’ ones, huh?

Read more about the circumstances surrounding the death of Blair peach here.

Poster published in 1980 by Friends of Blair Peach and Anti-Nazi-League.

The funeral of Blair Peach saw people of all races, beliefs and religions unite to pay their respects to the young anti-fascist:

    Thanks for posting this, Barry.
    The first time I ever spoke at an SU meeting was in 1989 in support of the motion for them to back the ten year anniversary campaign and I have had an interest in the case ever since.
    Twenty years on, its good to see a little progress. And I still detest public speaking.
    Rob.
