This week 42 years ago, New Zealand teacher, and member of the Anti-Nazi League, Blair Peach died after a clash between police and protesters at an anti-fascism rally in Southall, London, 1979. He was 33, and suffered fatal head injuries. London's Metropolitan Police Service finally released its report on Blair's death in 2010, and found that it couldn't determine who delivered the blow that killed him. Writer and barrister, David Renton writes for the left wing publication, Red Pepper.
