The 27th November 2017 was the 10th anniversary of Bernie Banton’s passing. In honour of Bernie, members of his family organised a remembrance day visiting ADRI, the medical research centre named in Bernie’s honour.
Bernie Banton was an Australian crusader for people suffering from asbestos-related diseases and social justice. He was the widely recognised face of the legal and political campaign to achieve compensation for the many sufferers of asbestos-related diseases.
