2014 Photo Review
All Out for People's
continues its photo review of actions carried out by collectives of
working people in 2014. In June, people across the country continued to
mobilize against the Harper dictatorship's wrecking agenda that
includes cuts to Veterans Affairs and refugee health care.
June began with a rally by Ontario
injured workers in front of the Legislature and actions in other
cities to mark Injured Workers' Day. All over the country, injured workers are
increasingly mistreated by governments that have betrayed the
arrangement whereby workers would not sue companies for
compensation when injured at work in return for its being guaranteed
by the public authority. Injured workers are organizing against this
dismantling of the public compensation system and its being turned over
to private insurers.
BC teachers carried out vigorous mobilization throughout the month. On
June 17 they went from rotating strike actions to an all-out
province-wide strike. They did so in the
face of the BC Liberal government's wrecking of public education
through massive funding cuts and its refusal to negotiate with
teachers on their wages and conditions of work. Parents, students,
organized and unorganized workers and entire communities showed the
broad support for teachers and public education.
Workers' Day rallies at Queen's
Park and in other cities demand an end to the attacks on injured
claims to compensation. Every year for the past 31
years, workers commemorate the June 1, 1983 demonstration that
changes to the workers' compensation system at that time, and continue the fight
