Miners’ Strike Stories Film Premiere, March 6th to coincide with the end of the miners’ strike in March 1985. The Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign wanted to record the real stories from participants of the great strike as a way of preserving on film the heroic struggles of our Miners, Families, Women Against Pit Closures and other supporters from across our mining communities.
These accounts not only tell the story of times past, but also provide inspiration to future generations of why they should become involved in the Trade Union Movement today. The première will be held in the iconic Miners Hall, which holds dozens of miners’ banners. Light refreshments will be provided.
Organised by the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign, Deputy Chairperson Joe Rollin will compère the evening which also includes speakers Chris Peace—OTJC Activist, Chris Kitchen—National Union of Mineworkers, General Secretary and Richard Burgon MP— Shadow Justice Secretary.
