GDC Local 6
GDC Local 6 endorsed the fight of Fellow Worker Deepan Budlakoti in his struggle to keep his Canadian citizenship and not be deported to India. You can support him by signing a petition, donating to his legal defense fund, and raising awareness about his case in your community. Read Deepan’s story.
Local Six’s ongoing campaign is to put pressure on Ottawa City Hall and the Ottawa Police so that they stopped their relentless harassment of members of the Ottawa Panhandlers Union and other people who live and work on the capital’s streets.
