Stop non-essential construction during coronavirus pandemic


This 12 April 2020 video from Britain says about itself:

Call for Non-Essential Construction to be shut down

11am Sunday morning, flowers are laid to mourn construction workers who will lose their lives unnecessarily during the coronavirus pandemic. The respectful ceremony took place at the ‘Building Worker’ bronze statue at Tower Hill, which was commissioned as a memorial for all those who have died on building sites by the construction union UCATT (now a part of UNITE). The symbolic event was to mourn the dead, but also to fight for the living, and was carried out as part of the mass #ShutTheSites movement that has been trending on social media for the past 2 weeks, calling for non-essential building sites to be closed.

Building a new hospital is essential construction. Building another mansion for the richest man in the world, Jeff Bezos, Amazon, Washington Post and Whole Foods boss, who endangers his workers’ lives by dangerous work environments for partly non-essential work, or building mansions for other rich people, is not. Building a church for a coronavirus denialist fundamentalist televangelist is not.
