Direct Action and you: intro to the IWW-GDC

Doug Ford’s attack on the people is not going to end with a rally or petition from bureaucratic political parties. Time and again we learn that direct action gets the goods. It may sound daunting, but you aren’t alone. No matter what the bosses and their cronies legislate, there will always be more of us than there could ever be of them.

On May 20th, come meet Local 6 and learn how you can get started as an agitator, educator, and organizer in the IWW-GDC. Arrive early for food and coffee.
