Asian Labour – Local & Global Solidarity
– Circulated on behalf of Asian Canadian Labour Alliance BC –
Join us for an evening of intra-Asian solidarity building on December 1st, featuring leaders advancing justice in BC’s labour movement and beyond!
Given the COVID-19 pandemic, rise in white supremacy, and the current political climate we are in, there is an immediate need for Asian workers to come together in a multi-racial struggle towards liberatory justice. What are Asian workers doing to organize their workplaces and the broader labour movement? How does class, race, and gender affect Asian workers organizing in settler-colonial states, and not just Canada? How do we build an intra-Asian coalition locally and globally as we fight for justice in the landscape we’re currently in? Join us in conversation as we explore these questions, featuring leaders advancing justice in BC’s labour movement and beyond.
Featuring: Reah Arora, Harinder Mahil, Julie Diesta, and Hanna Kawas (check out their bios here)
When: Wednesday, Dec. 1, 7-8:30 pm Pacific Time
*Only registered attendees will receive the Zoom link, which will be emailed prior to the panel.
