Lyra McKee to be remembered at International Workers Memorial Day on Sunday
25 Apr 2019
The Derry Trades Union Council will this weekend honour workers, including Lyra McKee, who have been killed or injured while doing their jobs. Niall McCarroll Chairperson of DTUC said that on International Workers Memorial Day the trade union movement will stand together as one and in solidarity, remembering the dead and fighting for the living. They will honour the hundreds of thousands of working people killed or injured doing their jobs every year. Events will be held throughout the world, with Derry Trades Union Council marking International Workers Memorial Day on Sunday 28th April at 6pm, Guildhall Square. Mr McCarroll added: “Local trade unionists will welcome everyone through word and song, and we send an invitation out to the people of Derry. “Poignantly and respectfully, Lyra McKee will now also be remembered on Sunday along with those other workers across the world who are now longer with us as a result of just doing their job. “An injury to one is an injury to all, join the DTUC on Sunday as we show strength and unity, remembering workers and their families across the world.”
