2014 Photo Review

All Out for People's Empowerment!


TML Daily is continuing its month by month photo review of actions carried out by collectives of working people throughout 2014 in the spirit of defending the rights of all, defending social programs and public services, restricting monopoly right and opposing imperialist aggression and war. The fight to defend indigenous rights has also taken pride of place throughout the year.

In February, actions continued on many different fronts to oppose the anti-social offensive and wrecking of social programs and the public authority -- a march in Montreal demanded the right to housing be guaranteed, in BC health care workers organized against contracting out of their jobs to labour trafficking monopolies and mobilization continued around the demand that the Harper government and Canada Post rescind planned cuts to the public postal services. Aboriginal women across Canada and Quebec held marches and vigils to remember and honour the more than 1,000 missing and murdered Aboriginal women and to demand the Harper government hold a public inquiry into their cases and end this violence. In Ottawa the Omushkegowuk Walkers were warmly greeted as they completed a historic journey of over 1,700 kilometres calling for new arrangements between Canada and First Nations peoples.
