who shot the sheriff?

"Queer jew socialist boy seeks a better world" said one of the signs in the 1978 anti racism rally-turned-concert that united punk and reggae, took east London's Victoria Park by storm and changed the course of music and politics in the UK. 

This is the full story - a film for all the cynics and skeptics who think they can't change the world...

So glad I caught this at the EEFF. Although I wasn't even born at the time and am not a Londoner per say, I couldn't help but get goosebumps when I saw such a familiar scenery taken by the crowd, united for something they believed in. 

More about the history and events that lead to the 1978 Carnival - including Eric Clapton's racist remarks - here
