Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign

Frances O’Grady’s speech to regional TUC

Below is an extract from Frances O’Grady’s speech to the regional TUC conference in Leeds, in which she mentions the Orgreave Truth and Justice campaign.

“And you’ve kept up the flag of justice flying for the Orgreave miners and their families.

“Make no mistake, the decision by the Independent Police Complaints Commission to drop its investigation was shameful. But it only doubles our determination to find out the truth.

“And I want to give you my personal assurance that the TUC will not rest until we what those miners and communities deserve – a full and independent public inquiry and justice for all.”
