At the time it occurred, the attack was reported to the seminar that my informant was attending, in the Unison Panorama Hall, Alexandra Palace, as having been carried out by members of the British Movement, a neo-Nazi outfit particularly active in Britain during the 1980s, who had presumably infiltrated the event by abiding by the impeccable commercial principles of the GLA and wearing red wristbands.
Very soon afterwards, participants at the same seminar were told of the arrival of the Wombles and the police in their wake. Later, the Wombles left and it was reported that the police were arresting them.
There are two central questions raised by this account, if true:
(1) What steps, if any, were taken to detain the attackers of Weyman Bennett?
(2) If the attack took place before the arrival of the Wombles, they must be
exonerated completely from any part in a racist attack.
I am anxious to hear from further witnesses without an axe to grind in this matter, particularly anyone who attended the seminar in the Unison Panorama Hall between 6.00pm and 7.00pm, so as to corroborate other details of my informant's account.
Please disseminate this appeal for further information as widely as possible and send any replies to me rather than to the lists in the first instance.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation in this urgent matter.
