Remembering Blair Peach
On this day we remember Blair Peach, a teacher who was taking part in an Anti-Nazi League demonstration against a National Front election Meeting in the Town Hall in Southall, West London in 1979. Blair Peach was hit on the head and died later that day in hospital. The police investigation concluded that Blair Peach had been hit by one of six SPG (Special Patrol Group) officers.
No-one has been prosecuted for his murder despite years of campaigning.
Our thoughts are with Blair’s partner at the time of his death , Celia Stubbs.
