1991/../Artichoke: 91 Stepney Way E1 : Grand Met-Watneys. This was where Peter Piatkov (affectionately known by the locals as Peter the Painter) and two other comrades made a stand against the capitalist system and the authorities, afraid of this act of revolt, sent armed police, troops with machine guns and field artillery against them. Peter Piatkov escaped and later in his life did a sterling job as head of the International Security Service of the first peoples state, the Soviet Union. One of the photos also shows the Home Secretary of the time, a certain Winston Churchill, who later became famous for planning a military adventure, so as to advance his political career, this was at Gallipoli. /../../Pub Directory
