9781873797495: When We Touched the Sky

Cultural Writing. Political Science. By the end of the 1970s, the National Front seemed poised to become Britain's third political party. But the NF had enemies on the terraces and in the clubs, and everywhere the young fought back. This is the history of that struggle. "The Anti-Nazi League was one of the real triumphs of the left in Britain. As a consequence of its campaigns, British fascists imploded, so that even today they are weaker than their continental counterparts. This carefully researched and eloquently written book provides the first full-length history of the ANL. It shows how ordinary people can affect the course of history, providing stirring memories and valuable lessons"-Peter Alexander.

Book Description New Clarion Press, United Kingdom, 2006. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. It was summer 1977 and people were fighting in the streets of Britain. An openly fascist party, the National Front, began to win press interest and high votes. It gained a foothold on the terraces and on working-class estates. There were marches against mugging and counter-marches against the far right. How was it, people asked, that racism and fascism were being allowed to march again? There were demonstrations outside police stations and broadcasting studios. The National Front won over 100,000 votes in London alone. Its supporters marched through Haringey in North London, and were stopped only by a mixed crowd of black and white Londoners, throwing shoes, bricks and flour. At Lewisham, that August, fighting between left and right saw 200 people arrested and 50 policemen injured. The Sun, the Mail and the Daily Express argued against immigrants, urging the state to take action against the dangerous extremists who opposed the National Front. But as the papers began to take sides, so did many others. Together with other anti-racist and anti-fascist organizations, the Anti-Nazi League mobilized up to half a million people, painting out graffiti, handing out leaflets, persuading people to vote against the right. It was one of the biggest mass movements that Britain has ever seen. Told through interviews with local activists, this book is the history of that campaign. Bookseller Inventory # AAO9781873797495
