Day of Mourning Events

April 8, 2013

April 28 is the annual Day of Mourning for Workers Killed or Injured on the Job. On this day, all over the world, public ceremonies are held at 11 AM to remember those workers killed or injured on the job, or suffering from an occupational disease. Those of us who cannot attend the ceremonies can take a moment of silence.
