May Day 2011: Stop the Cuts! Status for All!

Posted in

May Day 2011 bannerOn May 1st 2011, International Worker's Day, workers waged and unwaged, people with and without status took to the streets of Parkdale. For the 6th year in row we gathered to demand Status for All, to march for justice, for freedom, for access without fear, for the right of all to live with respect and dignity.

As people gathered in front of Parkdale Collegiate they were greeted with delicious food, high-energy musicians and Samba bands, and hundreds of vibrant flags, placards and banners. Powerful messages of solidarity were delivered by indigenous sovereignty activist Missy Elliot, Jethro Tulin from the Porgera Alliance of Papua New Guinea, the Caregivers Action Centre, the South Asian Women's Rights Organization and the International Federation of Iranian Refugees.

Over 1800 people braved the gray and rainy day to be a part of the demonstration, and Parmbir Gill, an organizer with No One Is Illegal – Toronto explained that commitment when he said: "Those who are the most marginalized, the most gunned down, the most kicked, beaten, spit on, treated like dirt, we who bear all of these acts of violence on our minds and bodies - we are also the most rugged, the most stubborn, the most resilient.”

Toronto: Who will you be marching with on May 1?

facilitated by organizers from Workers Action Centre, Migrant Workers Alliance for Change, Justice for Migrant Workers, Caregivers Action Centre and No One Is Illegal - Toronto

April 4, 2011

72 Lib, 350 Victoria Street
Ryerson University

On April 4th, join the May Day Assembly on Immigrant Rights with Ai-Jen Poo, National Co-Chair of Domestic Workers Alliance, New York City.

Migrant Justice organizers across Turtle Island have fought to create workplace protections, benefits, access to services, and full status for undocumented and precarious status workers. On April 4th, join us to continue this struggle!

In the face of cutbacks, privatization, and forced displacement around the globe, and anti-immigrant policies in Canada, we continue to build a community-labour vision to ensure that the rights of the most vulnerable and precarious members of the working class continue to be fore-fronted during May Day, and within all struggles for justice.
