London, 13/03/2017. Today, Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign held a demonstration outside the Home Office in London to protest against the "Home Secretary's shocking decision in October not to grant an inquiry into 'The Battle of Orgreave'", when police and military police planned and carried out an attack to miners during their pickets on the 18th June 1984 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Orgreave - from Wikipedia.org) with the alleged collusion of Margaret Thatcher Conservative Government and the support of some media distorting their reports to break the miner's strike. During the rally, protesters handed out leaflets about boycotting the Sun newspaper due to its coverage of the Miners strike and of the Hillsborough disaster (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hillsborough_disaster - from Wikipedia.org). Protesters from Enterprise Not Guilty by Association joined the protest to support Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign and to those imprisoned under the 'Joint Enterprise' law which has allowed to sentence people just because connected (sometimes insubstantially) with people who committed crimes (For more information please click here: http://www.jointenterprise.co/ ).<br />
