Some photos from the Orgreave Truth and Justice Picnic and Festival on 14 June

The picnic and festival organised by the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign (OTJC) on Saturday 14 June at Orgreave attracted around 1,500 people, with a peak attendance early in the afternoon of 1,000. This was a highly respectable turn out and most people seemed to enjoy the event. Here are some photographs of the day itself. All photographs are copyright Mark Harvey of ID 8 photography and are not for reproduction.
