Labour Struggles in Palestine & International Solidarity | Sunday, May 8, 2016 @ 1 pm | Ryerson University, Jorgensen Hall (Room 5)

The global labour movement has long criticized Israel for human and trade union rights violations and abuse of Palestinian workers, while workers in Palestine are resisting oppression and building a movement we can support. Trade unions and federations of labour in Canada are heeding the call for solidarity made by 170 Palestinian organizations for a Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign. Let’s discuss how we can continue to build this solidarity.
