It’s not a secret, TELL PEOPLE about it!! Tell:
anyone you meet, and
don’t forget your employer
Workers Memorial Day is on the 28th April every year.
This is OUR day, a day when workers and our families and our trade unions, focus on health and safety at work, both in our workplaces, and at events locally, nationally, and worldwide. This year more than ever we need to fight for our lives as the recession caused by a greedy, globalised financial system acting out of control under government deregulated, light touch regulation, has caused global meltdown and threatens to make our health and safety an even lower priority.
DON’T DO NOTHING, TAKE SOME ACTION, GET INVOLVED
Attend one of the local events or organise one yourself. If you cannot attend an event try to do something in your workplace – and at very least put up posters, wear a forget me knot ribbon and hold a one minutes silence at noon and tell everyone about it!
Every year there are thousands of events across the world on WMD attended by millions of people. There are hundreds in the UK.
The point of the Day is two fold:
to Remember the Dead and also to Fight for the Living
