East London Groups to Unite in Anti-fascist Fight

Download PDF for this date

With the city’s East End still simmering as a result of the Sunday’s disorders involving Fascists and their foes, a committee of citizens today undertook to unite East London communities for the maintenance of order.

Under the auspices of Toynbee Hall, London’s famous public forum, East End leaders will meet tomorrow to discuss the project.

Meanwhile, police made seven arrests in the East End as clashes between Fascists who persisted in addressing hostile crowds in that sector and anti-Fascists continued. The police, with batons swinging, charged the throngs again and again.

Sir John Simon’s reply to the attack by Herbert Morrison, left-wing Labor Party leader, who held him responsible for the Sunday riots, was made in Yorkshire last night.

Speaking before an audience of his constituents, the Home Secretary stated that nobody in the country was fit to be dictator. Britain, he said, is world-respected and safe and no British citizen would dream of handing over his land to Socialists or Fascists for the establishment of a dictatorship.
