Last British deep coal mine closes, miners demonstrate


This 19 December 2015 video is called KELLINGLEY COLLIERY MINERS MARCH.

The last deep coal mine in Britain closed, and the miners marched in a demonstration to their work for the last time. Report of the demonstration: here. And here.

One of their banners said sarcastically Save fuel, burn a Tory [member of the British Conservative government which closed the mines].
