This chapter discusses the restrictions on free speech and public assembly that were introduced during the General Strike of 1926. These restrictions seemed to apply disproportionately against the communists. During the General Strike one to two million unionists went on a strike to support the miners who had been locked out by the coalowners. This event resulted in a number of important legal issues, which are discussed in this chapter.
