Tony Ciff gave an excellent summing up of the strike so far and urged us miners to go back to our pits and continue to argue for mass picketing of power stations and steelworks, and to argue for support amongst rank and file trade unionists to lobby their unions for support. We ended by singing the ‘Internationale’, but I didn’t because I hate communal singing and felt embarassed, though I liked the words.

  The girls couldn’t stop talking about the great time they’d had and the friends they’d made. They were sad to leave, and so were Kath and me. We agreed it was the best holiday we’ve ever had, and I feel ready to continue the strike reinvigorated.
