Mangrove Protests


Notting Hill Carnival

Notting Hill Carnival

Weeks before the planned 1970 carnival, demonstrators marched to protest against police harassment and constant raids on the Mangrove Restaurant. The demonstration ended in civil disorder and a number of arrests. The Mangrove Nine trials followed. Consequently Rhaune Laslett cancelled her plans for the 1970 carnival and retired from the event.
