Workers Memorial Day (for info)

Description: A day to remember the dead but fight for the living!

International Workers’ Memorial Day and UN World Day for Safety and Health at Work is celebrated every 28th of April.

Every year more people are killed at work than in wars. Most don't die of mystery ailments, or in tragic "accidents". They die because an employer decided their safety just wasn't that important a priority.

Thousands more die from work related illness.
On Workers’ Memorial Day we reaffirm publicly that good health and safety regulation and enforcement means workers won’t be injured, killed or made ill by preventable work hazards and come home alive and well each day.

Join us in the Town Hall Square, Leicester at 12 noon Monday 28 April 2015
Begins at 12 noon with a minute’s silence and a roll call to commemorate those workers who have lost their lives.

Followed by wreath laying and a short public meeting.

Please join us, bring your families, it’s their lives we are fighting for!
