2016 Photo Review

All Out for Democratic Renewal!


TML Daily is continuing its month by month photo review of actions carried out by workers and their allies in 2016.

On February 14 annual memorial marches were held to honour the memory of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. The mass actions across the country demanded that the Canadian state be held to account for the violence it continues to commit.

People from all walks of life mobilized to support the fighting peoples of Venezuela, Haiti and Cuba, opposed U.S. and Canadian interference in their countries and Canada's participation in warmongering.

Working people in Ontario and Quebec mobilized to reject the anti-social austerity agenda and demand an end to cuts and privatization and increased investments in social programs and public services.

People continued their actions to defend the rights of all. This included opposition to state-organized racist provocations and keeping up the demand of Canadians for the repeal of the Anti-terrorism Act, 2015 or Bill C-51, implemented by the Harper government in 2015 in the face of mass opposition.
