To the House of Commons:
The petition of the residents and friends of Llanelli declares that:
The shooting by the military of two men during the railway strike of 1911 was an unnecessary and unjustifiable act of violence.
The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge HM Government to issue an apology for the killing of John ‘Jac’ John, tinplate worker and Leonard Worsell, labourer.
And the petitioners remain, etc
This petition is now closed.
End date: Dec 25, 2011
