25 000 people say no to Liberal agenda, Report on teachers demo at Provincial Legislature

28 Aug

On Aug 28th various segments of the working class, including Steelworkers local 1005 joined teachers and supporters on the lawn of the provincial parliament, Queens Park to stay no to the back to work legislation that the provincial Liberals are ramming through before the Sept. 6th by election that will take place in Kitchener Waterloo and Vaughn.

About 25 000 people with banners and placards gathered to hear speeches and denounce this attack not only on the teachers but the whole working class.

Todays demonstration shows that the people of Ontario are sick of the neo liberal offensive pushed for by the Liberals and Conservatives and are demanding that there basic rights be respected. The rally ended with folk music as people were singing Billy Brag, as well as a commitment by all to reject this austerity agenda being forced on the backs of the working class by our so called political leaders.
