Battle of Lewisham 77

On 13th August 1977, the National Front attempted to march from New Cross to Lewisham to demonstrate their racist agenda. However, the local community had other ideas. The events that then unfolded would later become known as the Battle of Lewisham. A symbol of solidarity in the face of fascism and racism.
