    WORKER: ...believe that people in these workers enjoy very good working conditions and very god wages. This has been gained for them largely by the organisation of the trade union. They enjoy all the trade union legal facilities, which we believe are the finest in the world for a trade union, and at the end of the day, when the trade union asks for them to repay that in some way, they're not willing .. they just want the benefits and that's all.

    1st WOMAN: We're supporting the strike, not only because we're housewives, but we're also steelworkers ourselves ... and if its the only way to get what we want we have to do it

    2nd WOMAN: ... and after seeing this today, we've got something to fight for. We've got to fight for our men ... we've seen the violence of these police today, its sickened me.
