Great news! Today the Criminal Cases Review Commission announced it has referred for appeal the convictions of eight of the Shrewsbury pickets. This almost certainly means their convictions will be quashed as the government will not contest the ruling. This victory is the culmination of a 48 year battle, led with great tenacity by the Shrewsbury 24 Campaign, which has fought doggedly and courageously to bring the truth of this government conspiracy to light. Harry Chadwick, on behalf of the Campaign, sends thanks to the club for its support over many years. At some time of Harry's choosing, we'll be holding a celebration at the club.
Laura is well known in the NW performance poetry scene and a stalwart of the Wigan Diggers Festival. Here she discusses the music that has helped shape her politics and her poetry. Julia asks the questions and cues the music.

A Private War (Dir. Matthew Heineman 2018)
Drama depicting the career of Maria Colvin, one of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time. A complex and rebellious spirit, Colvin reported from the frontline of some of the most brutal conflicts of our times, giving a voice to the voiceless. “...at a time when news itself is under fire ... perhaps Colvin’s story is more relevant than ever.” Mark Kermode, The Guardian.
