Video: Councils for the Defence – 1986

This 20 minute long documentary was made by Yvette Vanson, director of the Battle of Orgreave, in 1986. It explains why Lambeth Council resisted the moves by the Thatcher government to cap their local rates which would have meant millions of pounds worth of cuts in service provision.

Features interviews with local people, councillors and trade union activists.
