The Fighting 60s: 62 Group

I have been sent an article Steve Silver wrote  on the militant anti-fascist organisation the 62 Group for Searchlight in 2002. I’m more than happy to put up articles on the Anti-Fascist Archive and if you have any please send them to me.

He talks about the origins of the 62 Group and it’s familiarities with the 43 Group from the 1940s. The 62 Group was also largely made up of working class Jews and it’s main opponents were Mosley’s fascists but also the future leaders of the fascist movement: Colin Jordan’s and John Tyndall’s group the Nationalist Socialist Movement.

Silver’s article contains a large amount of eyewitness accounts and photographs.

To find out more on the 43 Group pick up fantastic book by Morris Beckman – 43 Group: Battling with Mosley’s Blackshirts.
