2014 Photo Review
All Out for People's Empowerment!
In this issue, TML Daily continues its 2014 photo
review with actions that took place in the month of November. In
Quebec, the mobilization against the neo-liberal austerity agenda being
imposed by the Couillard government continued to gather momentum.
Actions opposed the offensive being waged on childcare and family
services. A day of action by municipal workers opposed attacks on their
pensions and collective bargaining rights and included a day-long
strike by some union locals. The month closed with demonstrations in
Montreal and Quebec City of some 125,000 people. In Ontario, a rally in
defence of public health care demanded that local hospitals be kept
open and the privatization of services be ended.
Across Canada and Quebec, youth organized actions to demand justice for
Michael Brown, the unarmed black youth killed by police in Missouri and
to bring to the fore cases of police violence and impunity in Canada.
Actions also demanded justice for the 43 Mexican students missing since
September 26 and an end to state violence and impunity in Mexico, and
also denounced the Harper government for its silence on the issue.
Fifty-thousand people demonstrate in 11
cities across Quebec
condemning the Couillard government's offensive against family
services. The participants affirm that a modern family policy is an
asset to the Quebec economy, not a cost.
