The Parliamentary candidate was Mr. Herbert Andrew, a schoolmaster from Middleton, Manchester.
The meeting was held in the open, due to Manchester City Council breaking Election law and refusing Mr.Andrew a meeting hall as was his right under the 'Representation the Peoples Act'.
About 1,000 police were on duty nearby, and only moved into action when the communist filth lead by Manchester IRA activists got beaten back.Knives were taken from the 'red filth' but NF members were arrested by the Police. A worse example of criminal corruptness by anyone never mind Greater Manchester Police, would be hard to find.
There is a famous pic of John Tyndall right at the front of the violence that day. Displaying uncommon bravery. Which the zionist/communist traitors from SEARCHLIGHT displayed on their front cover at the time.
Violence was also 'whipped up' by the communist activist film star Vanessa Redgrave who was also a candidate and was having 'affairs' with several black men around North Manchester at the time. Many cars containing white people were attacked by the West Indians that day in Moss Side.
This picture shows one of Rochdale National Fronts most keen activists from that time, shown on the left. 'Mick' was hated by the reds around the Manchester area. Especially when the Lillywhites football team were playing on Sunday mornings. This writer spoke with 'Mick' very recently, to inform him that this picture survives. Rochdale NF had a very large and organised branch in those days.
Shortly after this picture was taken, the violence was launched by the communist and IRA scum.
This pic has been borrrowed from ; John Kevin Wilshaw, another long time nationalist known to this writer.
