2016 Photo Review

All Out for Democratic Renewal!


In this issue, TML Daily continues its 2016 photo review with events in the month of June.

Ontario injured workers set a fighting tone for the month with a mass action that reiterated the demands of the working class that the workers' compensation system must provide universal coverage for all workers and meet the actual needs of injured workers. Workers vigorously condemned the attempts of governments to implement neo-liberal cuts to social programs on the backs of injured workers increasing their suffering.

Federal public sector workers carried on their fight to defend public services and their rights against demands for cuts and attacks on workers' sick leave from the federal government. Workers rallied across the country to affirm that they would not accept the Trudeau Liberals continuing the anti-social demands of the previous government in negotiations.

In Vancouver, CPC(M-L) launched its program leading up to the 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017 to emphasize the need for democratic renewal of the political process and a modern constitution enshrining an equal union between Canada, Quebec and the Indigenous peoples.

At the end of June, people converged in Ottawa to protest the North American Leaders' Summit and its aims to integrate Canada and Mexico into the U.S. economy and military. Actions also brought forward the people's solidarity with all the peoples of the Americas exploited by U.S. and Canadian monopolies.
