We are commemorating the day that 30,000 Birmingham Trade Unionists went on strike in support of the National Union of Mineworkers in their bid for fair pay.
15,000 engineering workers picketed to close the gates of the last remaining open fuel depot - Saltley.
The blockade forced police to close the gates.
