11/6 Social Screenings: Still the Enemy Within

The UK miners' strike of 1984-1985 was (and remains) the biggest industrial action in the country since 1926. The strike lasted almost a year, illegally for the last several months, at its height including more than 140,000 workers.

It was Margaret Thatcher who called the striking miners "The Enemy Within". Thirty years later, "Still the Enemy Within" took a historical look to one of the main (lost) clashes in the Western turn towards neoliberalism: the organised industrial labour led by unions on one side, and the right-wing government, led by Thatcher, on the other.

The film will be shown in English, with English subtitles.
