Socialist Action in the Toronto Labour Day Parade

Once again, Socialist Action was in the forefront of the annual Toronto Labour Day Parade that saw tens of thousands of union members march from University Avenue and Queen Street to the entrance of the Canadian National Exhibition. While the official theme of the day was "Educate, Agitate and Organize", the SA contingent was one of the few that pressed for a general strike to remove the arch-austerity Ontario government of Conservative Doug Ford, and urged workers to "Vote NDP, and fight for Socialist Policies." Equally popular slogans were: "Hands Off Venezuela" and "From Kashmir to Palestine, Occupation is a Crime."
