Phoenix School is still there in Bow, and, in a tribute Peach would surely have appreciated, a primary school in Southall was named for him. But still, no officer has ever been charged with his killing. RIP Blair Peach, 25 March 1946- 24th April 1979. ✊🏻

Remember Chaggar and Peach: join our march on Sat 27 Apr Our aim is not only to remember the past by learning lessons from the resistance but also to prepare, as today the twin giants of racism and poverty again fuel a far right resurgence
