Casann Easpag Desmond Tutu le na stailceoirí.

Bishop Desmond Tutu was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 for his stance against apartheid in South Africa. His journey to the award ceremony in Oslo involved a stopover in London, where he asked some of the Dunnes strikers to meet him. Karen Gearon and Mary Manning went with IDATU official Brendan Archbold. The meeting gave the strike credibility, a moral boost and a lot of publicity.

In this ‘Féach’ report , Tutu calls for “a groundswell of support” for the strikers. Reporter Pat Butler meets Mary Manning and Cathryn O’Reilly on the picket line, six months into the dispute. They compare themselves with nurses, who would not be penalised for refusing to carry out abortions. They are also disappointed with the lack of support they're getting from other Dunnes workers.
