Dunnes Stores Workers at Mandela Funeral

March to boycott South African goods 10.02.1960


Workers who protested against the handling of South African produce during the Apartheid campaign were in South Africa for a funeral service for the late Nelson Mandela.


All 11 of the former Dunnes Stores workers, whose strike of almost three years moved the Irish government to ban South African produce in the 1980s were in attendance … Their strike was one of the longest in trade union history in Ireland and only ended when the government agreed to ban the import of South African fruit and vegetables until the apartheid regime was over.
