You say 'two pickets were killed' during the 1984-5 strike. Two men separately died while they were on picket duty - one was hit by a brick, the other run down by a lorry. No one was charged with causing these deaths.

You, in common with almost everybody else on the far left, 'forget' to mention that two miners were convicted of killing a taxi driver who was driving a strike-breaking miner to work. The two strikers were convinced of murder, which was reduced to manslaughter on appeal.

Tell the truth, or at least mention what happened. Otherwise, you are not much better than the capitalist press.
