Miners still hold their banners high

Issue No. 2444

Some 1,000 people joined a march last Saturday in Hatfield, Doncaster, marking 30 years since the march back to work that ended the 1984-85 Miners’ Strike. 

In Wakefield 700 people joined a With Banners Held High event. And over 60 people attended the latest screening of Still The Enemy Within in Barnsley organised by South Elmsall Labour Town Council.

This included Mark Jones, father of David Jones, the young Frickley miner killed on the picket line at Ollerton in March 1984.

Four previous Barnsley screenings have attracted nearly 600 people to them.
