This video from Britain says about itself:
The Battle Of Cable Street, Sunday 4th October 1936
Short documentary on the East End of London’s militant anti-fascist action against Mosley‘s British Union Of Fascists on Sunday 4th October 1936
The anti-fascist groups built roadblocks in an attempt to prevent the march from taking place. The barricades were constructed near the junction with Christian Street, towards the west end of this long street. An estimated 300,000 anti-fascist demonstrators turned out.
Over 10,000 police, including 4,000 on horseback, attempted to clear the road to permit the march to proceed. The demonstrators fought back with sticks, rocks, chair legs and other improvised weapons. Rubbish, rotten vegetables and the contents of chamber pots were thrown at the police by women in houses along the street.
After a series of running battles, Mosley agreed to abandon the march to prevent bloodshed. The BUF marchers were dispersed towards Hyde Park instead while the anti-fascists rioted with police. 150 demonstrators were arrested, although some escaped with the help of other demonstrators. … Around 175 people were injured including police, women and children.
The slogan of the British Union of Fascists and National Socialists of Hitler copycat Sir Oswald Mosley was ‘Britain First’. Also the name of the present neo-nazi violent gang. The British Union of Fascists and National Socialists’ symbol was the flash and circle. Also worn by the recent violent attackers of a bus in Kent, on which these nazis daubed a bloody swastika.

Britain First fascist duo arrested for wearing uniforms
Wednesday 17th February 2016
THE leaders of fascist street gang Britain First have been arrested and banned from Luton after staging a “Christian patrol” last month, police confirmed yesterday.
Party leader Paul Golding and deputy Jayda Fransen were taken into custody after “wearing uniform with political objective” at a racist rally last month.
The group published a video showing the pair outside a Kent police station abusing the police and resisting arrest.
They were bailed but have been banned from Luton during investigations, while they will also be expected to report to their local police every week.
A Bedfordshire Police spokeswoman said: “A 34-year-old man from London and a 29-year-old woman from London have been arrested on suspicion of a public order offence in connection to a demonstration that took place in Luton on January 23.”
The pair led a clutch of supporters on a walk through Bury Park carrying wooden crosses and shouting at local Asians that Muslims were trying to “take over” Britain.
After the arrest, North London Anti-fascists took to Twitter, saying: “#BritainFirst’s Golding & Fransen have finally been arrested for wearing political uniforms.
“We can’t stop laughing.”
Political uniforms are banned in Britain under the 1936 Public Order Act, brought in when authorities got fed up with Oswald Mosley’s nazi-loving British Union of Fascists.
Mr Golding was fined £100 for wearing a political uniform in January 2015, for a Britain First stunt in which he harassed a woman at her home, for which he was fined £325 and ordered to pay over £500 costs at Chelmsford magistrates’ court.

THE former leader of Britain First was sentenced to eight weeks in prison yesterday after flouting a court order that banned him from entering mosques.
Paul Golding, 34, who recently stepped down as head of the fascist group for family reasons, admitted contempt of court at the High Court over an incident that happened just over a week after he had been hit with the injunction.
The court order prohibited him and his then deputy Jayda Fransen from entering any mosque in England and Wales without prior invitation and from encouraging others to do so on his behalf.
It also excluded them from Luton town centre after a lawyer for Bedfordshire Police testified that the pair had caused “community tensions.”
The rule was implemented in August this year, but nine days later Mr Golding drove four Britain First members to the al-Manar Centre in Cardiff for a so-called “mosque invasion.”
He stayed outside and took photos while an argument ensued between his four male colleagues and a mosque trustee.
Mosque members found the confrontation provocative and unnerving, according to James Weston, counsel for the Chief Constable of Bedfordshire Police.
Judge Moloney said the breach was a “deliberate and cynical defiance” of the court’s order as well as an affront to Muslim communities living in areas where Britain First might circulate its propaganda.
Mr Golding — who stood in the London mayoral election but turned his back on Labour’s Muslim candidate Sadiq Khan when the latter gave his victory speech — will serve four weeks of the sentence.
The judge said it was not true that Mr Golding, who appeared to make an unreserved apology, did not understand the terms of the order.
He had promised it would never happen again but he had made a similar promise last year, Judge Moloney added.
He continued: “The conduct restrained was by its nature of an extreme kind, calculated to increase tensions between different members of the community of this country, particularly to affront the Muslim community.
“Such conduct was plainly calculated to give rise to the risk of provocation and violence and further extremism and tension.
“These are most serious matters at the present time.”
