Critical and Theoretical Studies (CATS)

My essay for CATS this year will be about the miners strike of 1984 and more specifically the picketing at the Orgeave coking plant on the River Rother South Yorkshire between 1984-1985 in which Margaret Thatcher the then Prime Minister took an aggressive stance against not just the miners but their families as well.

Here is the a couple of images I am looking at using for the essay?

I will also be looking at the support they received from others miners throughout the UK and how the wives got involved by setting up soup kitchens etc.

See this article about the Orgreave strike on YouTube.
