Walk the wall

Unite GS Len McCluskey urges everyone to #WalktheWall and support campaign to make Covid Memorial Wall permanent

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.
