Plaque dedicated to Tony Mulhearn

  (Click to enlarge)

Dave Walsh, Liverpool Socialist Party

On International Workers' Memorial Day (IWMD), 28 April, a plaque dedicated to Tony Mulhearn was unveiled in Liverpool with his family present.

Tony was one of the Liverpool 47 who beat Thatcher, and a lifelong member of Militant and the Socialist Party.

Inscribed on the plaque are Tony's words when he spoke at the IWMD event in 2019: "Those who put profit above worker safety should never go unchallenged." Tony announced at that meeting that he was suffering with pulmonary fibrosis, which is an incurable lung disease.

The likely cause was his exposure to chemicals when he worked as a printer. He passed away in October that year.

Tony's family were presented with a copy of The Ragged Trousered Philanthropist by the event organiser John Flanagan. The plaque will be permanently erected later in the year at St Georges Dock Building near the waterfront.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our Fighting Fund.
