2014 Photo Review

All Out for People's Empowerment!


TML Daily concludes its 2014 photo review of actions carried out by collectives of working people with coverage of the month of December. 

In Toronto injured workers held their 23nd annual Christmas demonstration at the Ministry of Labour to demand justice and oppose the increasing impoverishment they and their families face as a result of cuts and denials of benefits. Idle No More rallies on Parliament Hill two years after their first day of action marked an upsurge in the movement of aboriginal peoples for their sovereignty and rights.

Looking back on the events of 2014 confirms for working people that they can and must develop their independent politics if they are to defend public right and restrict the power of the monopolies and governments acting in their service. It confirms also that their future lies in the fight for the rights of all.

Note to Our Readers

Seasons Greetings

With the completion in this issue of the photo review of 2014, the publication of TML Daily is being suspended until further notice. The TML Weekly will continue regular publication without interruption.

We are pleased to inform you that in the new year during which a federal election will be held, the Marxist-Leninist Party of Canada will begin regular publication of a new online newspaper Renewal Update. Also in 2015, the regional committees of CPC(M-L) will continue to publish their own newspapers from time to time.

We call on our readers to join the work of the party press in any way they can. Canadians cannot afford to lose their bearings as a result of the massive disinformation of the monopoly-owned media. They use scandal mongering and gutter politics to divert the people's attention from how to unite to provide the problems facing society with solutions. We will continue to count on your reports, photos, articles, distribution networks and financial contributions.

On the occasion of the New Year, we wish you safe and happy holidays and success in all your endeavours in 2015. Together let us take a bold stand in defence of the rights of all! All out to uphold the public authority against the onslaught of private takeover! Nation-Building Yes! Nation-Wrecking No! Who Decides? We Decide!

With communist greetings,
TML Technical and Editorial Staff
