    • History

There is fury at a lack of compassion shown by the authorities to the victims of the New Cross Fire. Many are convinced it was a racist firebombing and accuse the police of failing to investigate properly.

Thousands of people from across the country descend on London for a march to demand justice. Organisers say more than 20,000 people take part in the Black People’s Day of Action - at the time the biggest ever protest led by black people in the UK.

This podcast includes strong language, use of racist terms and descriptions of violence.
