Remember the Dead – Fight for the Living

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.
Workers’ Memorial Day is our chance to remember them and demand
an end to this suffering!
