Some additional appendices are included.

The New Cross Massacre Story is produced as part of the Dream To Change The World Project. This five year HLF funded project began at the George Padmore Institute in June 2010. Its purpose is to make available to the public the personal archives of John La Rose, the GPI’s founding chairman. Documents and papers from the New Cross Massacre Action Committee’s campaign for justice for the victims of the fire are already stored in the archives of the George Padmore Institute and can be accessed by the public
