Thread Name: Music: Police and Striking Miners
Subject: RE: Music: Police and Striking Miners
I read the two posts above in puzzlement, wondering just what the authors imagine they have to do with the brutal, class-motivated role of the police in the British miners' struggle against pit closures and for jobs.

The anonymous Guest spews a lot of bitter, unsubstantiated anti-union accusations but the oddest statement is that "music is for enjoyment". Music in the context of fighting for and defending hard-won democratic industrial rights can and should be angry and defiant.
