|Arthur Scargill remonstrates with police at Grunwick picket (Homer Sykes Archive)|
I well remember the sight of the NUM marching into Willesden on the Day of Action on July 11th 1977 and joining the demonstration in support of the mainly female and mainly Asian strikers. Locally the support of Cricklewood postal workers was vital.
Thanks to the Met you can read all about it!
Wonderful - all violence at Grunwick was by the pickets. Tell that to anyone who was there (and the fairies). Police were vicious, including use of the Tactical Support Group, their attack dogs. Very interesting and useful list of banners present on the day.
