Indymedia Presents: The Enemy Within - The Miners Strike 1984-5

Mon 1 June 2009 // 20:00

(Mon 1st / 8pm / £4/3 but nobody refused entry for a lack of funds)

Join us and Bristol Radical History Group for an informed and provocative night looking back at the 1984-5 strike. This struggle pitched the National Union of Miners against Thatcherism in a physical and ideological battle that still reverberates though the land today. It's a compelling story of solidarity, media bias, divided communities, MI5, police brutality and who should shape the future direction of the United Kingdom – told by the people who lived it.
