The Shrewsbury 24 Campaign is delighted to announce that after 15 years we have finally achieved victory. The Court of Appeal has today quashed the convictions of the North Wales building workers who were tried for picketing offences in 1973-74. The lead picket, Des Warren was sent to prison for three years and blacklisted upon his release. As a result, he never worked again and died prematurely in 2004, aged 67.
As most of you know, along with several other organisations, the club has for many years raised money for the Palestinian Gaza Womens Education Fund. The fund is dedicated to helping pay for Palestinian women to receive a university education. Over the years we have held many fund-raising events and sent many thousands of pounds to our partners in Sheffield who administer the fund, which is currently supporting 58 women in Gaza and 3 in the West Bank.
