NEW CROSS FIRE SOUTH LONDON 1981

New Cross Fire Massacre March 1981 The Black People's Day of Action' march to the West End of London in protest at police inaction. Fordham Park New Cross London. 1980s UK. <br />
<br />
The New Cross Fire was a devastating house fire which killed 13 young black people during a birthday party in New Cross, southeast London on Sunday 18 January 1981. Some were shocked by what they perceived as the indifference of the white population, and accused the London Metropolitan Police of covering up the cause, which they suspected was an arson attack motivated by racism; the protests arising out of the fire led to a mobilisation of black political activity. Nobody has ever been charged in relation to the fire
