On March 21, Belly Mujinga was working her shift at Victoria Station in central London with a colleague when they were coughed and spat at by a member of the public who claimed to have COVID-19. Within days, Belly had fallen ill and eventually passed on to the other side, becoming another frontline casualty of this tragic outbreak.
This week, the Prime Minister announced that 312 NHS and social care workers have passed away from the disease. By the time you are reading this, that number will likely have grown.
Each Thursday at 8pm, millions of us take to our front steps and applaud the work of our heroic frontline workers. It’s become almost a platitude on the left to suffix any mention of this by highlighting the inadequacies of the government’s response - repeated so often the words almost ring hollow. However, we must continue to advocate for the safety and well-being of all people to be the number one priority in any policy decisions.
We hope you find beauty and meaning in these posters - print them, tweet them, share them, make your own. We dedicate this series of posters to the memory of Belly Mujinga and our other gallant workers who have become victims of not only this outbreak, but of a floundering response from an incompetent government.
