Shrewsbury 24 New Year update 2021

On behalf of the Shrewsbury pickets and the campaign committee we wish you all a Happy New Year and thank you for the support that you have given to us over the past fourteen years. As you know, we have never given up our quest for justice for the pickets. Against all odds, we have succeeded in having their unjust convictions referred to the Court of Appeal.

We have been informed that the Court of Appeal has ‘pencilled in’ the pickets’ appeal for 3rd and 4th February 2021. This date could change due to the effects of Covid-19 on the operation of the courts and the restrictions that the Government put in place. Should it go ahead on those dates, it is likely that there will be restrictions on attendance at the hearing but we will not know until nearer the time.

When we have any further information about the date of hearing and the court’s arrangements, we will post a further update on our website and write to all our trade union affiliates and supporters.

Thank you all for your continuing support we really appreciate it. We are nearly there.

Best wishes
