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.
