1970s ACTIVISM & AUTONOMY: stories from East London Big Flame


Welcome to the
East London Big Flame
archive site

Many people have asked us about East London Big Flame and our political activism in the early 1970s. This site gives a summary of what we did and why, and it contains links to pdfs of many of our original documents, leaflets, pamphlets etc.

We hope that the activists of today – who share many of our concerns and ideas – will find it interesting and useful.

Some of the documents we made, some we helped make, some were part of the activism around us and a record of that time. Tatty layouts (pre-computer), different times, different issues, an optimism that can look crazy in retrospect. We hope you enjoy it all.
