Thu 21st November, 2019 @ 18:00 - 19:45

An evening commemorating the activism of Blair Peach who was a teacher in Phoenix School, Bow.

Blair Peach was a committed trade unionist, socialist, anti-fascist and teacher.

He died after being attacked by police at an anti-racism demonstration in Southall in April 1979. His loved ones’ campaign form justice is one of those spied on by Britain’s political secret police.

The evening will bring together:

  • Suresh Grover (The Monitoring Group)
  • Alex Kenny (NEU)
