No Pit Closures

Reposted from 31 August 2005 because it still survives.

This old poster is on a notice board outside the old council houses across the road from my flat
- its survived 20 years or so I guess -
Support the Miners/No Pit Closures.
Note the ‘Miners’ part of the flyer has been erased, I guess this is poignant in a way. Reports of a reopened colliery in Yorkshire got some news airtime last year – not just a historic ‘museum’ type gesture but reported as such, the mine opening is significant in a way that all those films like Brassed Off just weren’t.And support the Hollywood writers strike – though some of them could do with some time down pit as well.
