2014 Photo Review

All Out for People's Empowerment!

Throughout 2014, 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 their 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.
