This is the UNLOCKED pt.1 of a 2-part interview. For ENGLISH IRONIES - our discussion of Marc's expulsion from the Labour Party and where the Left went wrong in the Labour antisemitism affair - subscribe now at Patreon.com/ThePopularPod.

A trade unionist and leading Black rights activist through the 1980s and 90s, Marc Wadsworth was part of a cadre of campaigners who gathered around the family of Stephen Lawrence after the racist murder of the London teenager - and subsequent bungled police investigation - in 1993. In this interview, Marc tells the remarkable story of fighting for justice with the Lawrences, recruiting Nelson Mandela to the campaign, and finally how Britain's elites used the case to launder their own reputations.
