Candle-Light Vigil for Charlottesville victims of right wing terrorism.

August 12th, 2017 by J

Ottawa Outaouais IWW members will be offering our support and  solidarity to those injured and killed resisting the violent right wing terror attack yesterday in Charlottesville with a candle-light vigil at 7PM tonight at the Human Rights Memorial (161 Elgin). An IWW contingent counter-protesting the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville were attacked by a white supremacist who drove through the crowds with their vehicle injuring many and killing one protester. Additionally, there are accounts of white supremacist groups terrorizing the streets with drive by shootings using vans and assault rifles. We encourage everyone to come out and show your support for the victims and opposition to violent right ring terrorism. Facebook Event A fundraiser has been setup to cover the medical costs for the many victims. Go Fund Me

Stand With Lac Megantic Defendants

July 23rd, 2017 by J

From the Ottawa-Outaouais General Membership Branch Whereas, the railroad and the government has sought to blame the employees for the natural result of the combined reckless work rules and policies that undercut safety and even basic common sense. Whereas, the Canadian Transportation Safety Board’s 18 causes for the disaster are all company policy driven. Whereas, the MMA (Montreal Maine & Atlantic Railway) has declared bankruptcy and will face no charges for their own negligence. Whereas, two railroad workers face criminal charges and a life sentence for a tragedy caused by unsafe railroad management policies. Whereas, the Ottawa – Outaouais IWW stand in solidarity with all workers facing unsafe work conditions and persecution from bosses and state agents Be it resolved that, the Ottawa – Outaouais IWW fully endorses the Railroad Workers United hardingdefense.org campaign to have all charges dropped against railroad workers Tom Harding and Richard Labrie. Solidarity with the victims. Solidarity with the workers. Hold the bosses to account! More Info Donate Here Railroad Workers United Twin Cities GDC Fundraiser Event
