Organise! members in the north-west recently held two one day protests against
deaths in the construction industry at the new Debenhamís store in Derry. The
protests and leafleting began on the first opening Saturday of the multi-million
pound Debenhamís extension to Foyleside Shopping Centre, and another was held on
the 1st anniversary of the death of the second of two workers killed on the site in January.
A recent inquiry into the death of Charles OíConnell (killed in a fall on 3
September 2002), decided no file would be sent to the DPP and no prosecutions
would result from the incident. Bosses on site when Charles fell docked his
workmates a half-dayís pay for walking off the site and going to the hospital
to find out about their critically injured comrade.

Leaflets titled ĎDying for Debenhamísí at the protest
highlighted Charles and John Bainesí deaths and the
casualisation and sub-contracting which allows this to
continue while profits soar. These men were risking
their lives for a couple of hundred pounds while the
head of Debenhamís, Belinda Earl, earns in the region
of £800,000 a year. Organise! members in the
north-west are pledged to maintaining this protest for
the foreseeable future.
