The community of Staffordshire turned out in their tens of thousands on Saturday (20 April) in a united march calling for full NHS acute services at Stafford Hospital. The march spilled through the streets and alleys of Stafford taking almost an hour to clear the starting line in Market Square. The crowd packed tightly into the grounds of the hospital waving rally banners and chanting.

On every 28 April, International Workers’ Memorial Day (IWMD) is held to remember the dead, and fight for the living. We remember those killed, made ill, or injured by their or someone else’s work.
