Miner’s Pension Scheme Rally

miners-rally-1

Cracking day singing in support of the Miner’s Pension Scheme campaign for justice and fair play in Derby Square, Liverpool. No PA so I had to resort to just playing acoustically in the street, something I haven’t done in Liverpool since the April of 91, but I always love to return to my old stomping ground and if au naturelle was good enough for Woody Guthrie, then it’s good enough for me.

It was a great day for speeches, especially ASLEF President Tosh McDonald, a real firebrand and as fine a comrade as you’ll ever meet, who has an incredible knack for weaving the threads together and seeing the bigger picture, reminding us that our various campaigns are all a part of the same struggle and we should never lose sight of our power if we stand strongĀ together.miners-rally-tosh

This is just the start of a campaign dedicated to fighting the government’s blatant robbery of the Miner’s Pensions and I was proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with my Hatfield comrades and miners from up and down this island as we take the first steps down that road.
