#IWMD20: light a candle for frontline workers
28 April 2020
In a powerful message marking International Workers' Memorial Day the President of Ireland Michael D Higgins called for action to match the outcoming of praise for frontline workers during the Covid-19 crisis.
“We are encouraging union members, their neighbours and friends to light a candle and to post a picture on social media using #IWMD hash tag. We also member those who have died or injured as they carried out their professional duties. Martin O’Hagan, Lyra McKee, Veronica Guerin will be of curse in the mind of NUJ members - on this day works around the world are unity in solidarity and remembrance.”
