Orgreave justice – upcoming events in Leigh, Barnsley, Mansfield, Chesterfield and Sheffield

The Orgreave Justice campaign and their supporters have a number of upcoming events, mainly in the old mining areas:

On Friday 21st, at the Miners’ Welfare Institute in Leigh, just outside Wigan, there’s a fundraiser for the campaign, including a film screening, campaign update and light supper.

Over the May Day weekend, Orgreave campaigners will be putting in appearances at a number of events – the Barnsley Festival of Solidarity, the Mansfield May Day rally and the Chesterfield People’s Gala.

Further ahead, on Saturday 17th June, there’ll be a rally marking the anniversary of the battle itself, meeting at Orgreave Lane.

About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
