Last night saw another fantastic meeting in the Miners Hall organised by the Barnsley Trades Council with speeches from Steve Turner, Tosh McDonald, Jane Aitchison and Brian Steele.

Steve Turner Unite Assistant General Secretary and head of Unite Community talked about the necessity to build a broad coalition to defeat the Tories, he talked about the importance of building strong political, Industrial and community strength so we are able to stop the Government attacks on our class.

He finished his speech by saying that if laws were put in place that are unjust laws then we would be forced to break those laws, “we have a duty to stand up for what is right and we will follow in the tradition that has gone before whether that’s like the suffragettes or those who for for civil rights bad laws are made for breaking.”
