The newly formed Islington Trades Union Council held its AGM last week at the Town Hall, which was an eye-opening historical tour into the fighting past of the borough. A host of interesting speakers were present including Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn, who reminded us that Islington was once the home of Karl Marx, and Vic Turner, one of the Pentonville Five who recounted the significance of the 1972 Dockers' strike.
