It’s official. Hamilton will take part in the global movement. This Saturday the fifteenth, meet at high noon in Gore Park to demonstrate along with Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary and countless other cities around the world. The following Saturday at noon, and all Saturdays hence, we are planning General Assemblies downtown to determine a direction from here. If support for one exists, we may well soon have an occupation in Hamilton as well.

Hamilton was the site of some of the first labour demonstrations in Canada, with the nine-hour workday movement. Again, in 1946, a strike at Stelco played a crucial part in gaining legal recognition for unions across the country. It’s time to do it again.

Saturday. Gore Park. High Noon. Bring your friends.
