Wapping Post

While having a tidy-up at home I came across a copy of the "Wapping Post" which was published during the 1986/87 News International Wapping dispute in support of the sacked workers.

I decided that it was worthy of a wider audience, so I scanned it all to make it available as a free ebook.

I also discovered, while browsing the web, a 25-minute video ducumentary called "Wapping and the Wire" which was made to commemorate the first anniversary of the dispute.

That video has been incorporated into the ebook.

I would like to make further copies of the "Wapping Post" available, so if anyone has copies at home, and would like to help, please get in touch.

Part of the front cover of possibly the last issue of the Wapping Post ever published, dated March 31, 1987

The last "Wapping Post" ever? Dated March 31, 1987 this full 16-page issue is included in the Ebook
