2014 Photo Review
All Out for People's
workers, women, seniors, veterans, students, youth and people from all
walks of life continued to organize courageously against the brutal
neo-liberal anti-social offensive. The Harper dictatorship, along with
the provincial governments -- several of which passed over to Liberal
majorities -- continued to restructure the state to eliminate any
vestige of public authority and politicize private monopoly interests.
TML Daily is
posting a month by month photo review of actions carried out by workers
and their allies in 2014 to put their concerns on the agenda. From
coast to coast to coast, the movement to develop the independent
politics of the class has continued to make headway.
The new year was
ushered in with postal workers and
supporters organizing mass actions across the
country to tell the Harper government and Canada Post to keep their
hands off the public post office after drastic cuts to the service
were announced at the end of 2013. Thousands of Canadian
military veterans along with
people from all walks of life participated in actions across the
country to oppose the closing of Veterans Affairs offices in eight
cities. First Nations continued to mobilize against the attempt of the
Harper government to impose a colonial Education Act.

Leader Tim Hudak's Beamsville office against the austerity agenda being
