Cable Street 80
On Sunday 9 October 2016, over 50 Jewish Labour activists and many more allies from across the Party marched to remember the Battle of Cable Street with pride and purpose. There was chanting and singing, led by ex-youth movementniks, of Ose Shalom, Hatikvah and even a rendition of Adon Olam to the tune of the Red Flag! The activists, religious, secular, young and old, former UJS presidents, movement workers and community leaders, were there to remember a seminal moment in Jewish Left history and to express their present commitment to progressive politics.
The march heard from JLM Vice-Chair, Sarah Sackman, alongside Max Levitas, Cable Street veteran, Jeremy Corbyn MP, and others. She spoke proudly about her family history, and the need for the Jewish community to remember Cable Street. You can listen to her speech here.
