Looks at Southall, one of the major Asians centres in Britain, and shows how this community organised to resist fascist attacks from 1976 to 1981. Southall’s militancy goes back to the community organisations of the 1950’s which were created to help black workers combat racism at the workplace and deal with discrimination in the community. As racism increased, the community has fashioned and forged new weapons of struggle.
