The so-called “Freedom Convoy” occupied the streets of Ottawa for 23 days this winter. Spin-off protests and blockades have rocked cities and towns across the country. Who organized these protests and what are their goals? What does it mean for workers? And how can CUPE members respond?
Three CUPE regions are coming together to co-host a webinar to look at these questions and more. Join us for a discussion with Kurt Phillips from Canadian Anti-Hate Network; Aubrey Gonsalves, CUPE diversity vice-president; and Angella MacEwen, CUPE National’s senior economist.
The COVID pandemic put a huge strain on our public services and revealed the gaps in Canada’s social safety net. What will that mean for politics in Canada going forward? How do we fight back against the rise of the far-right, racism and white supremacy? Workers and the labour movement have a responsibility to answer these questions. This is sure to be an informative and engaging event—invite your friends and family to join.
ASL and French language interpretation will be provided.
