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.
