Two important events tomorrow (June 23rd)!
First - A one-hour picket at the Polish Consulate from 11 am to noon. This will protest the new law in Poland which bans any symbols associated with communism. Similar protests have been held across Europe and in Toronto. Organized by the Communist Party in solidarity with the Polish communists and others in eastern Europe who are facing growing repression.
The address is 1177 West Hastings - this is between Bute and Thurlow. We will have leaflets to hand out, and some of the "illegal" symbols. Please Kimball know (by email or 604-255-2041) if you can join us.
Second - the International Trade Union Confederation is holding its global conference this week at the Convention Centre. This will include a rally starting at 12:30 tomorrow, on the theme "Now the people - from the crisis to global justice." The Communist Party/Young Communist League will be present with a banner and materials. It's just a couple of blocks from the Polish Consulate to the Convention Centre.
