Reading time: 2 min

On International Workers’ Memorial Day on Wednesday (April 28), Unite general secretary Len McCluskey joined bereaved families who lost their loved ones to Covid-19 at the National Covid Memorial Wall in London.

Unite is supporting these families’ campaign to make the wall – which is covered in individually hand-painted hearts commemorating each life lost in the pandemic – permanent.

With more than 155,000 hearts now painted on the wall, the memorial stretches nearly a mile long and takes a full ten minutes to walk.

Hear from our general secretary Len McCluskey in the moving video below about why everyone should #WalktheWall.
