Remembering Sarah Chapman - Matchgirls strike leader

Picture of Newham Mayor, Rokhsana Fiaz and myself placing flowers at the grave of Matchgirls strike leader, Sarah Chapman.

Today family members and supporters were asked to place 'A Flower for Sarah" either on her grave itself or "virtually" on social media. Her grave (and others around it) are at risk of being levelled and "mounded" with additional topsoil by the company that runs Manor Park Cemetery were she is buried.

This picture of the grave this afternoon was tweeted by the campaign
