Justice for the Coalfields

Chronicle_Coalfields_7_11.jpgFollowing the 'Justice for the Coalfields' debate in Parliament last week, the South Yorkshire Times and Barnsley Chronicle report on the campaign for justice and Michael calling for the Government to force a swift inquiry into Orgreave if the IPCC does not urgently publish its findings.

"The debate has come too late for so many of the miners and families who saw their lives and communities decimated after the strike, but that sense of injustice endures today across those coalfield communities who are still dealing with the devastating consequences of what happened"

"Orgreave was not just a black day for Yorkshire, it was a black day for this country and the Government should consider a swift independent review on Orgreave if the IPCC cannot get its act together"
