You Can't Kill The Spirit! The Untold Story of the Women Who Set Up Camp to Stop Pit Closures

by Sheffield Women Against Pit Closures
£12.00   paperback  Sheffield Women Against Pit Closures (2018)

You Can In January 1993, seven pit camps were established to fight against pit closures announced in 1992 by Michael Heseltine, the President of the Board and Trade. One such Pit Camp, at Houghton Main in the Dearne Valley, was set up by local women and the local N.U.M Branch with the support of a group of women collectively known as the Sheffield Women Against Pit Closures (SWAPC). Day and night, week on week for six months, the pit camp was staffed by the wives, partners and supporters of miners.
 
The stories of these women, and the people with whom they worked, to defend jobs and coal-mining communities, and to campaign for long term energy policy have never been told.
 
Stories of Activism has worked with Sheffield Women Against Pit Closures for over five years to produce this book. It contains photos, articles, interviews, and letters from those involved.
