More old Posters from Militant, The Socialist Party and Young Socialists December 22, 2010

Another series of posters (other bunch here) from Militant, The Socialist Party and Young Socialists that I was sent recently. Most if not all are for Rally’s in Belfast.
Amongst the subjects covered are The Miners Strike, Apartheid , Trotsky and the Poll Tax.
Alas the quality and size are poor but they may well be of interest none the less .

Two of a series of Christmas cards produced in 1984 by Rhymney Valley Miners Support Group during the Miners Strike in Britain.
(I have two more which I shall post too -many thanks to the sender)
The First Card contains a poem entitled ‘Kids Questions’ which begins

amid the quiet of the night.
Children don’t understand this fight.
They don’t know or realise,
Why their dad has tears in his eyes….

The Second Card has a poem ‘The Death of a Lady’ which begins..

My GOD! What a legacy.
Dark grey hills of slag.
My valley was once beautiful,
now she’s an ugly broken hag….
