Vancouver, BC—The Kalayaan Centre, its member organizations, along with the Congress of Progressive Filipino Canadians (CPFC), welcome and invite all to participate in a province-wide conference “Workers’ Struggles Amidst Neoliberal Globalization,” to be held on the 10th of November at Simon Fraser University’s Harbour Centre in Downtown Vancouver. Co-sponsored by other groups such as the Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies Department of Simon Fraser University, this significant gathering 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 global crisis of capitalism. The conference will welcome all to join the over decades-long history and militancy of the educating, organizing and mobilizing work of the Kalayaan Centre by continuing to build a progressive movement for social change.
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, standard of living and overall conditions. The conference hopes to concretely contextualize neoliberalism’s ongoing assaults against the working class, as especially highlighted through the experience of the transnational working class. The weekend event will provide all with an opportunity to discuss and deepen their collective understanding of workers’ realities and struggles and to forge genuine solidarity through panel presentations, open discussions and more.
In sharpening and advancing an understanding of the global crisis of capitalism that is situated within the daily struggles and resistance of working people in Canada and the world, this important gathering will surely heighten the militancy and resolve of all to strengthen and innovate workers’ resistance in Canada and beyond.
