2014 Photo Review
All Out for People's
TML Daily continues its month
by month photo review of actions carried out by
collectives of working people in 2014.
May 1 is the International Day of Working Class Unity
and Struggle, when workers across Canada, Quebec and around the world
celebrate advances in the fight for rights and empowerment
so as to
build a new society which humanizes the natural and social environment.
It is the day on which they sum up their work over the past year and
their line of march for the next. Everywhere workers put forward the
demands of the movement -- "Canada Needs an Anti-War Government!";
"Manufacturing Yes! Nation-Wrecking No!"; "Governments Must Uphold
Public Right!" and "Stop Paying the Rich; Increase Investments in
Social Programs!" -- and committed to strengthen the Workers'
Opposition so as to turn the situation around.
Also in May, Postal
workers and others rallied to defend the public post office and First
Nations continued their resistance to the colonial First Nations Education Act. Ontario workers, especially injured
workers, took a stand during the provincial election to defeat all
champions of neo-liberal austerity. BC teachers continued their defence
of public education with rotating strikes to oppose the Clark
government's attack on their working conditions.
Actions across Canada
celebrated May Day 2014 with the
spirit of fighting unity and determination to stop the nation-wrecking
and phony austerity agenda of the Harper government and governments at
outside speech by Canada Post CEO Deepak Chopra on "postal
transformation" being used to wreck the public post.
