2016 Photo Review
All Out for Democratic Renewal!
TML Daily continues its month by
month photo review of actions carried out by working people, women,
youth, Indigenous peoples and their allies in 2016, with events in
Postal workers continued to confront serious attacks on their rights
and working conditions, achieving a tentative agreement in negotiations
at the end of August. During this time, the Trudeau Liberals worked to
undermine and interfere with postal workers' defence of their rights,
while the workers mobilized in Montreal and other cities.
In August, Canadians celebrated the 90th birthday of Comrade Fidel
Castro and once again expressed their friendship with the revolutionary
people and government of Cuba. The sad passing of Fidel later in the
year saw expressions of grief across the country and great appreciation
for what Cubans have achieved for themselves and all of humanity.
Montreal hosted the 2016 World Social Forum, with collectives of people
from Canada, Quebec and around the world drawing attention to their
just causes. The Trudeau Liberal government's mass denial of visas for
Forum participants was widely condemned. Indigenous peoples, led by the
Mohawk people of the area led thousands in the spirited opening march
putting their demands for recognition of their sovereignty and rights
front and centre.
In August, CPC(M-L) celebrates the life and work of its founder and
leader, Comrade Hardial Bains and all the comrades who dedicated their
lives to building the Party and organizing the class to take its place
in history. It is also a time to reflect on the significance of the
Party's work and prepare to take it further. During its August
Celebrations in Ottawa, CPC(M-L) hosted a seminar on the international
situation to discuss the significance and dangers of unfolding events.
