Plus there will be a viewing of the inspirational Anne Marie Sweeney film for the National Women Against Pit Closures – GOING THROUGH THE CHANGE.

“The women, whose voices we will hear in this film, are amongst some of the most frontline and experienced campaigners in the last thirty years: for women’s equality; for the survival of their communities; for trade union rights; for peace and for an end to military occupation and invasion. This is no piece of nostalgia but a vibrant important film, from filmmaker Anne-Marie Sweeney, which will have relevance to all those fighting injustice in years to come.”  Brenda Procter, National Chair of NWAPC
