Toronto, ON—The Congress of Progressive Filipino Canadians (CPFC) and its allies welcome and invite all to participate in “Workers’ Struggles Amidst Neoliberal Globalization,” a North American conference which will be held on August 11th – 12th at the United Steel Workers Hall in Toronto. The conference aims to put forth a critical and dynamic dialogue amongst progressive organizations, groups and individuals about our struggles and conditions as workers under the present crisis of capitalism.
Throughout history, we have witnessed and felt imperialism’s assaults on the working class. Now more than ever, workers’ lives are becoming more insecure and unstable as the neoliberal agenda of globalization intensifies its attacks on workers’ employment, wages and standard of living.
This conference will provide an opportunity for all to discuss and deepen our understanding of workers’ realities and struggles under neoliberal globalization. Through this gathering, we hope to further understand the historic role of the working class in building a movement for social change.
