Why can't we know the truth about a strike that happened 40 years ago? | Ricky Tomlinson

PUBLISHED January 22, 2013

Forty years and still no justice. It's a part of history now, but a history that has never been fully told. The Shrewsbury building workers' strikes of 1972, which saw 24 working men convicted for crimes they did not commit, are nothing short of a state-sanctioned conspiracy. And as the youngest of us is now 68, I'm nearly 74 and the eldest of us is 84, we worry that the truth will not out before it's too late.
