2011 Durham Miners Gala

The 127th Durham Miners Gala will be held on Saturday July 9 2011 and I want to encourage all RMT activists to attend this wonderful event.

The past struggles of the miners, particularly the strike of 1984-85, continue to inspire working people everywhere. Thousands of trade unionists will attend the 2011 Gala to pay tribute to the miners.

Please make every effort to attend and bring your banners. We want to have as large an RMT presence from all over the UK, as possible.

RMT General Secretary, Bob Crow
