SINCE OUR formation in 1986 the Justice Campaign has sent out regular newsletters to our 1,500 supporters and affiliates. While our main concern has been for the sacked and victimised miners and their families we have regularly invited other victims of government and employer injustice to our meetings and reported their stories in the pages of our newsletters. What follows is just a summary of these newsletters, regularly supplemented by more recent news and events.
