We Are Not Defeated – MAC MATINEE

WE ARE NOT DEFEATED! Miners’ Strike - the Women’s Story

(For International Women’s Day)

The 1984 Miners’ Strike began in March. Here we see footage filmed by the Miners’ Union cameramen at the heart of key events. The Norths Staffs Miners’ Wives Action Group were at the heart of the fight: marching, campaigning, running food banks. Their Trentham Pit Camp and occupations of the Hem Heath pithead became legendary in a documentary play at the New Vic Theatre. Lots of original footage of events, speeches and key personalities on this 40th Anniversary of the start of the year-long strike.
