Toronto — 8 May 2016.

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.

Moderated by Hassan Husseini. Presentations by:

  • Natalie Guay, Confédération des syndicats nationaux (CSN)
  • Mary-Jo Nadeau, Faculty for Palestine (F4P)
  • Mike Palecek, Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW)
