The Angry Brigade
The Angry Brigade were a group of British anarchist terrorists responsible for a long string of bomb attacks around Britain between 1970 and 1972. Targets of the attacks included banks, embassies and the homes of Tory MPs. In total, 25 bombings were attributed to them by the police. The damage done by the bombings was mostly limited to property damage although one person was slightly injured. The actions of the Brigade came to an end in one of the longest political trials of English history (May 30 1972 - December 6). As a result of the trial John Barker, Jim Greenfield, Hilary Creek and Anna Mendleson received sentences of 10 years. A number of other defendants were found not guilty including Black Flag publisher and former political prisoner Stuart Christie.
