The events shown in the mural took place on the streets around this college. Originally the mural was to be installed in the park on Batavia Road, off Clifton Rise, close to where the anti-fascists first congregated.
There are three information panels in front of the mural, describing the battle, the creation of the artwork and some of the groups and people featured in it including Godsiff, Howe and Stockwood.
