This morning at Tow Law one of the younger lads, Mickey Hoy, stood solid as a rock for three hours holding a ‘Stop the Police State’ placard face to face with a policeman. He was only prevented from continuing by the appearance of the lorries, giving the pig an excuse to punch Mickey in the face! This cowardly act was seen by lots of pickets who responded by surging forward in an attempt to get revenge. Yet a – bloody -gain it was the passivity of our own men that prevented us gaining the upper hand. The idle bastards just stood by and watched, even when a few of the lads were snatched from the front line and arrested! They just watched as we tried to rescue them but were defeated by lack of numbers. We have to overcome this passivity if we are to have any chance of achieving anything here.
Once again the most positive response of the morning was the arrival of the pies. I hoped some of the bastard would choke on them so we could stand and watch!
