Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign

The Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign has called for our supporters to gather in their hundreds this Halloween night (31 October) in Sheffield. This will mark the first anniversary of the Tory government's shameful decision not to launch an inquiry into the police riot at Orgreave in 1984 when 95 miners were beaten up, fitted up and locked up.

The Orgreave campaign sees it fitting that this decision was made on Halloween as we all know it's the monsters of the Tory past that denied us justice then and continue to deny us justice now. Like skeletons in the closet or monsters under the bed the evil Tory dogma of the past is still glued to the present conservative ideology. We aim to expose this horrible doctrine and its champions with a terrifying procession through the streets of Sheffield.

The night aims to be action packed with a spooky samba band and coffin leading the protest. We also have fire juggling and a terrible giant. Demonstrators will also be entertained with political speeches from a variety of justice campaigns all finished off with an after party with DJ and political poetry.

Come along and join the call for justice and help rid ourselves of this zombie government.

Support the #Deathofjustice rally at 5.30pm 31 October, Halloween Night assembling at Devonshire Green, Sheffield and marching to Sheffield Law Court
