Yesterday, August 8 saw the start of the 16th World Festival of
Students and Youth, which is being held in Caracas this year. Under the
slogan "For peace, solidarity and against imperialism", more than
15,000 young people from all over the globe gathered to discuss an
entire range of issues, all of them anti-imperialist in nature.
workers across BC and Alberta have been on the picket lines since
Thursday July 21st, making it clear that they will not roll over and
take the offer that the company is trying to impose. In five years
without a contract, the members of the Telecommunications Workers Union
have put up with Telus stalling, conniving, and repeatedly bargaining
in bad faith, in a blatant attempt to break the union.
