Worker's Day of Mourning - Day of Mourning
Remembering the 160 B.C. workers who lost their lives to workplace injury and disease in 2006

This year, because the Day of Mourning falls on a Saturday, WorkSafeBC will hold its ceremony on Friday, April 27. The ceremony will take place at 10 a.m. at the Workers' Memorial in Vancouver's Hastings Park. Families, workers, employers, and other interested parties are invited to attend.

For US events, check out the AFL-CIO's website and for worldwide events, the place to go (as usual) is Hazards which has a particularly informative website this year. Check it out.
