Battle of Orgreave tea towel

New Battle of Orgreave tea towel

The Battle of Orgreave was a violent confrontation on 18 June 1984 between police and pickets at a British Steel Corporation coking plant in Orgreave, South Yorkshire. It was a pivotal event in the 1984-85 UK miners' strike and one of the most violent clashes in British industrial history. In 2012, the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign (OTJC) was formed to campaign for a public inquiry into the policing of events at Orgreave following the success of the Hillsborough Justice Campaign and revelations about corruption in South Yorkshire Police. But in October 2016 the Home Secretary Amber Rudd announced that there would be no statutory inquiry or independent review.

Please note that for every tea towel sold will donate £1 to the Orgreave Truth & Justice Campaign: otjc.org.uk
