Poll Tax Riot - 10 Hours That Shook Trafalgar Square

I was just reading this, which is a review of the Danny Burns book about the Poll Tax and the Anti-Poll Tax Unions, and it mentions "Poll Tax Riot - 10 Hours That Shook Trafalgar Square" as being a militant account of 12 people's experiences of the riot. Does anyone have a copy of this pamphlet?
It does not seem to exist on the internet yet- so it should blatantly go in the library. If anyone does, could they scan it in for us? If not, I'll get one and do it.

I've got a copy, Freedom does it for a quid or something. Casseur also photocopied us a whole one to scan, but I haven't got time.

It would be good though.

I heard a rumour one of them was written by someone who turned out later to be a cop or something?

I can try to dig out my one to get to you if you want.

Er, but haven't you been scanning a Solidarity text for about two years?

wot, the ACAB Press one?

IF so, its pretty good, helps build a picture of the day. Very very anarchist, all the reports seem to be from CW members or supporters.
