Over 500 trade unionists gathered in the Norfolk village of Burston last weekend at the annual rally to remember the longest strike in history. The 25 year dispute started when school students walked out in solidarity with their socialist teachers in 1914.

Supporters of three Amicus union officials, who had been sacked from their posts, held a protest when Amicus leader Derek Simpson spoke. He launched a bitter attack on them, angering a large section of the audience who proceeded to heckle Simpson.
