    i don't know how many of the union reps here are aware of the orgreave truth and justice campaign Orgeave Truth and Justice Campaign -, but i hope all of you will join me in proposing to our branches donations to this worthy cause.

    It's about time Orgreave was investigated. I am surprised to find myself praising Burnham for raising this issue in Parliament recently. Even Blairites can do good sometimes.

    Orgreave inquiry calls grow after damning Hillsborough verdict for police

    Two blows to SYP in one day. I have mates who still have scars on their heads and missing teeth thanks to the assault they faced that day.
    One close friend spent six weeks in Armley for breaking his bail conditions and attending the mass picket.
    Others spent hours sat on floors covered in vomit and blood at Rotherham police station.
    As Mr.Bishie posted above.
    No Justice. No Peace.

    SYP -they're on the back foot, their reputation already in the mud. People are more receptive than ever to the truth about their corruption and violence. Now's the time to keep up the offensive against them.

    I think the statement by Tebbit says it all. How much hatred that man holds towards people fighting for their livelihoods and communities.
    Damn the man. Those who follow in his political footsteps will feel exactly the same when the cameras leave.
    A curse on their houses.

    I'm not sure I've ever read an interview before with Lesley Boulton, the woman who famously featured beneath the copper's cosh in this Orgreave picture


    but what she says is massively interesting.

    I assume this is meant to make a serious point in a lighthearted and 'hip' manner and is not trivializing the serious questions and suffering of people who fought a class war?

    That’s correct.
