Mr Chandulal Karsandas Thobhani, 78 & Mrs Indira Chandulal Thobhani, 72
1974: Assembly Line Workers
After the strike: Business Owners
Mr and Mrs. Thobhani formed part of the Ugandan Asian community that arrived in the early 1970s and built up Leicester's famous Golden Mile area. Their community's success made the Leicester Council of 1974 rue the day they put an ad in the Ugandan Argus newspaper telling Indians not to come to Leicester. They joined the strike because others in their community were doing the same. They built a good closure.
