Remember the dead, fight for the living - Aberdeen Workers' Memorial Service on Thursday 28th April 2016
International Workers Memorial Day (IWMD) takes place all over the world on 28 April each year.
Its purpose is two-fold. Firstly it is about not forgetting those who have died, been injured, or made ill by their work. Secondly it is about ensuring that this tragic loss and suffering are used to reinvigorate the campaign for healthier and safer work.
In this time of austerity, it is ever more important to protect our Health and Safety legislation, which is constantly under attack.
This will be a particularly poignant service as we mourn the deaths of three workers in the local area who lost their lives in work related accidents in the past few months.
The service will last for approx 30mins.
