May 21, 2020 - Labour, Working Conditions and Covid 19

When: May 21st, 4pm

Panelists will address how the COVID crisis is affecting essential workers and workplaces, the role of employment insecurity in shaping safety and security for these workers and the society that relies upon them, and potentially transformative outcomes that could arise from the pandemic for working conditions, corporate power, workers rights and (in)equality.
May 21, 2020 - Day of Action for PAID emergency leave days!

Online: Thursday May 21st

Let's raise our voices to demand at least 7 paid, permanent sick days for everyone - plus an additional 14 during outbreaks.

We all need 21 paid sick days right now! Join us on May 21 to demand action on paid emergency leave days for all.

Too many workers who keep us clean, fed and healthy, still lack the basic protection of paid sick days. Nurses, cleaners, paramedics, garbage workers, grocery store workers, and so many more CANNOT AFFORD TO STAY HOME without pay, even if they have symptoms.
May 21, 2020 - Green Jobs Oshawa Virtual Press Conference & Public Forum

Webinar: May 21st, 11am

Green Jobs Oshawa is holding an online Press Conference and Public Forum to highlight the desperate need for more PPE for our front line workers, especially N95 masks. We are calling on our governments to use their emergency powers to ramp up domestic production, starting with the obvious location of GM's largely empty Oshawa facility.

- Pam Parks - front line health worker
- Rebecca Keetch - Green Jobs Oshawa organizer

Moderated by Tony Leah, auto-worker and Green Jobs Oshawa Organizer |
May 17, 2020 - TAHA - The play

When: Sunday May 17th, 4pm
(Streaming in Canada only)

TAHA - The play, written by and starring Palestinian artist Amer Hlehel is based on the life of Palestinian poet Taha Muhammad Ali. His poetry tells of the experience of Palestinian refugees; his story parallels the story of the Palestinians who remained in their homeland after 1948. This internationally acclaimed play is not about the tragedy of a poet, but rather, about the triumph of his life.

May 16, 2020 - Lift the Siege on Gaza

Webinar: Saturday May 16th, 2pm

On May 16, Palestinians and their allies around the world will mark the 72nd anniversary of the Nakba (The Catastrophe), the culmination of the mass expulsion of Palestinians from their homes by Zionist forces.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we will mark the occasion over Zoom! We have a great lineup of speakers and a list of endorsing organizations that we'll announce in the coming days.

This year we're strongly urging the Canadian government to break the siege on Gaza, as medical supplies are urgently needed, now more than ever, as the spread of COVID19 would result in a humanitarian disaster.
