Arthur Scargill, Hero of the British Miners Strike of 1984-1985
Arthur Scargill, the unrepentant Marxist-Leninist who led the British Miner's Strike of 1984-1985 stands strong today as leader of the Socialist Labor Party of the United Kingdom. He led strikers to do battle with the police and the bosses in defense of what the Thatcher government was trying to strip away from them. They used military intelligence and secret police to kill the strike, and accused Scargill of being an agent of the Islamic Socialist Government of Libya.
10 Miners were killed by the British Bosses in this strike. Scargill stands before the British people today, calling on them to revive the spirit of resistance that was crushed in Thatcher's day and fight for Socialist Revolution.
