Anti-fascists returned to the Isle of Dogs, east London, last week to commemorate a victory against the Nazi British National Party (BNP) 20 years ago. In 1993 Derek Beackon was elected as the BNP’s first councillor in Tower Hamlets.
The Anti Nazi League launched a massive campaign against him. More than 100 activists gathered last week and remembered how they refused to see Tower Hamlets as a “no go zone”. They set about winning the Island back. In May 1994 Beackon was beaten in elections and the BNP’s base collapsed.
