March on the McGuinty Government
RAISE WELFARE AND DISABILITY RATES, RESTORE THE SPECIAL DIET!

Friday April 1st
Assemble at Nathan Phillips Square, Toronto
12 Noon

It has been 16 long years since Mike Harris cut welfare and froze disability. McGuinty's Liberals have been in power for half that time and done nothing to deal with poverty. In fact people are worse off today. It would take a 55% increase to bring benefits to pre-Harris levels. If benefit levels were restored to the same level of spending power as they had in 1994, a single person on Ontario Works would now be receiving $904 a month instead of the miserable $593 now being issued.

Start: 8:00 pm

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.

Fight Rob Ford – Stop City Cuts!
Contingent for the Community Day of Action in Toronto
Saturday, April 9, 2011

Meeting at: 12:30pm @ the corner of Church and Dundas (going together to join the rally at Dundas Sq.)

**Bring banners, signs and flags!

On Saturday, April 9th – OCAP and allies will be joining the ‘Respect Toronto’ Day of Action as a grassroots community organizations contingent. We are joining under the banner ‘Fight Rob Ford – Stop City Cuts!’

In the few short months since Ford took over at City hall, already we have seen the cutting of services in the 2011 budget like shelter spaces and transit access for poor communities, as well as moves towards privatization of garbage collection and Toronto Community Housing (TCHC).

Under Ford, poor communities will see a deepening of the crisis of poverty in this city;
