Dunnes Stores strikers say Nimrod,“He kept us going”
The recent visit to South Africa of the 1980s Dunnes Stores strikers to attend the memorial service for Nelson Mandela enabled the strikers to visit the family of the late Nimrod Sejake who while a political refugee in Ireland had supported and inspired the strikers. The visit by the IDATU - now Mandate - members who had taken unprecedented action by refusing to handle South African goods in solidarity with oppressed black workers, was reported on in the Irish Times 12th December and was clearly for the strikers and Nimrod's family of huge significance.
