This Friday on Workers Memorial Day there is a united call for an worldwide ban on asbestos...
Although Rochdale was the birthplace of the multinational Turner & Newall asbestos conglomerate, the memorial is intended for ALL victims of asbestos disease, worldwide- past present and future.
Please could you spare a few of minutes to email our campaign?
Please could you also let others know about the memorial.
-messages of REMEMBRANCE, SOLIDARITY or SUPPORT would be very much appreciated. They will be placed in Rochdale Town Hall on the day of the ceremony. The story of how asbestos has affected your friends, neighbours, colleagues and loved ones needs to be heard.
Just a minutes or so of your time today could help pass that important message on.
