TACKLING WORKING CLASS INJUSTICES 
UNITED AND STRONG

Every year the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign hold a wonderful, vibrant rally at Orgreave to commemorate the day Striking Miners were brutalised by police at the Orgreave Coking plant on 18th June 1984. This gives us all an opportunity to meet and show solidarity with comrades and friends and gather together with our magnificent display of banners and placards. 

Our campaign for truth and justice this year is commemorating the 36th anniversary of the Miners’ Strike and the events at Orgreave. Covid-19 Pandemic restrictions and the lockdown mean that we need to hold our Annual Rally online to keep us all safe. 

PLEASE JOIN US FOR THIS ONLINE VIRTUAL EVENT AT 1 pm, 20th JUNE

The Tory response to this pandemic shows us more than ever that we need to continue to campaign together to do what we can to put pressure on the Tories, who continue with their arrogance, contempt, evasion and lies, and do not care for workers and ordinary people. Please help us and support our call for a Public Inquiry for Truth and Justice and listen to speeches from other campaigns fighting for Truth and Justice. 

GET INVOLVED 

Please also send photos to us of you at our previous rallies and events or send a recent photo of you wearing one of our T shirts or wearing our hats and badges or holding a banner or placard, so that we can post the images online to show your support and solidarity.
