 Clifton Rise, Civil liberties activist Darcus Howe addresses anti-racist demonstrators from the roof of a public toilet block. 5,000 local people and anti-racist activists occupied New Cross Road in an attempt to stop the intimidator march of the fascist National Front. A quarter of the Metropolitan police, together with their entire mounted division, were deployed as an escort to the NF demonstration. The confrontation with the police went on long after the hugely outnumbered National Front had been bussed out of the area. This print sits in a beautiful wooden black frame. Frame dimension are 62 x 52 x 4 cm. Please allow 2-4 weeks for framing and shipping.
