2013 Durham Miners' Gala - Video

A superb documentary video is available of the 2013 Durham Miners' Gala including interviews with Frances O'Grady, General Secretary of the TUC; Bob Crow, Kevin Maguire, Owen Jones, and Huw Beynon, labour historian. It ends with the dedication of the new banners in Durham Cathedral and lines from the Masque of Anarchy by Shelley quoted by Canon Giles Fraser in his sermon.
"Rise like Lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number,
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you-
Ye are many — they are few"
