The Fighting Sixties. "In 1962, faced with a resurgent fascist movement, young Jewish men and women came together to oppose them." Searchlight magazine, through a comprehensive guide to the Jewish 1962 Committee (62 Group) presents a thorough historical rundown of anti-fascist activity in London. Eye witness accounts of London Battlegrounds, intelligence led actions, multi-racial, anti-fascist gangs and local heroes fighting back - stories to remember but also to warm the cockles of the heart.

Very interesting stuff - at least to this London Jew - thanks. Now you've gone and made me all nostalgic about my time at university when I was involved with the anti-fascist movement (around the time the Anti-Nazi League was reincarnated with plenty of SWP anti-Zionist support!). And, yes, a bit guilty about my lapsed 'Searchlight' subscription.

great stuff--thanks niceness!

Nowadays, the Love Music Hate Racism carnival seems like a great idea, given what was (is?) going on in the north of England last year...
