ANOTHER DEATH ON ANOTHER LONDON BUILDING SITE

Silent Vigil
12:00-13:00
Thursday 17th April 2014
Grosevenor Square
London

Yesterday, 14th April 2014, Dainius Rupsys from Lithuania aged 33
died after a floor collapse at the former US naval building in
Grosvenor Square, At least one other person has been treated for
minor injuries.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police confirmed that the man fell
after a floor in the six-storey building gave way. A spokesman from
the London Fire Brigade said a mini-digger on the second floor fell
to the floor below, as did the two workmen.

This is an appalling situation when this is the fourth death in London
in just a few weeks. After the deaths in Kings Cross, Stratford and
Holborn.

We today on 15th April are in solidarity with those involved in the 25
years anniversary events over the 95 Workers who were killed at
the Hillsborough football stadium. We also do not want to go
back to the situation when in 1988 over 157 construction
workers also lost their lives in what was totally
preventable and unnecessary workplace deaths.

Between 12.00 and 1pm this Thursday 17th April
2014 we will be holding a silent vigil at the site in
Grosvenor Square W1A 2LQ (off Oxford St). We
urge all those who support our demands for these
deaths to end to join us.

Our deepest condolences go to his family and workmates.

ATTEND THE PROTEST
