You can view here, the story of the Battle of Cable Street as it unfolds, through the pages of the Daily Worker. Nowadays it’s fashionable to state, without any facts, that the Communist Party reluctantly switched plans to march in Trafalgar Square, to mounting a token opposition to Mosley. Read the Daily Worker and judge for yourself. The Mosley march was under director of operations (headquarters) Sir George Duckworth King. The workers were led by Stepney communist Phil Piratin. A full account appears in the biography of Piratin and in his own account, ‘Our Flag Stays Red.’ The night after the defeat of Mosley, a victory march was held in the East End as Jack Phillips, repeatedly beaten around the head by police with batons, ‘hovered between life and death.’ Lionel Chursian was the first of 70 arrested to appear in court. He was fined Ten Shillings for shouting “They shall not pass!”.
