Hollywood film star and proud Corkonian, Cillian Murphy, has sent a letter of support to the former workers of Vita Cortex. The actor sent his message of solidarity, to the workers on sit-in at the factory in his native city, following contact with the Support The Vita Cortex Workers Online Campaign. The full text of the letter is as follows:
To the Vita Cortex Workers,
Cillian Murphy here.
For whatever its worth I really just wanted to pass on my admiration to you all for the courage and commitmment you are displaying in your sit-in. To everyone following this situation from the outside it is more than clear that you have right on your side and that what you are highlighting is hugely important to us all as a nation. As a fellow Corkonian with stubborn tendencies, I salute your refusal to accept what is an obvious injustice. I wish ye strength.
Fair play to ye all…Up Cork
