Angolan head of State appeals to citizens for reflection on self-sacrifice work

Angolan president João Lourenço has urged all citizens for a greater reflection on the challenges that lie ahead in order to keep the spirit of selfless work.

The appeal is expressed in a message ahead of the International Workers’ Day celebrated on May 1, published on his official website.

The Head of State also appeals for the need to work towards generating more jobs in the country.

“The only way to guarantee the well-being of families and ensure a better quality of life and a developed country to posterity is decent work”, he expressed.

On May 1, 1886, labour activists in Chicago city, United States, began a strike demanding an eight-hour workday.

During the demonstration, the police clashed with the activists, resulting in the arrests and deaths of workers.
