AFL Urges Support for First Nations Day of Action

by NationTalk on June 29, 20071146 Views

EDMONTON, June 28 – The Alberta Federation of Labour is urging all Albertans to support the First Nations’ National Day of Action, scheduled for tomorrow, June 29th.

AFL President Gil McGowan said today: “The labour movement has always supported movements for social justice, and the struggle of Canada’s aboriginal people is crucial to the future of our country.”

First Nations groups are planning events in several Alberta centers. In Edmonton, marchers will gather at the Baccarat Casino (10128 – 104 Ave) at 11:00 AM, then march to Canada Place for a rally. In Calgary there will be an Awareness Session at Olympic Plaza at 5:00 PM.

McGowan added that labour activists feel a special kinship with native rights advocates: “We both belong to movements in which individuals who by themselves are relatively powerless come together to draw strength from unity.”
