‘Highgate Hotel, East London 1 May 1993’ // Imagine this pub filled with locals having drinks and relaxing on a typical Saturday evening, but on this night just after ten o’clock the unthinkable happens. Two gunmen spray the pub with bullets, whole hand grenades and tear gas canisters into the bar area. They escape. The killers are members of the PAC’s armed wing, APLA. The dead are Derek Whitfield, Dave Wheeler, Deon-Wayne Harris, Douglas Gates and Stan Hacking. Many others are seriously wounded.
