This Saturday, November 19th from 12 to 4 pm Toronto protesters will rally at City Hall, come rain or shine! We'll march to the Trump Tower on Bay St! Our cities LGBTQ, Muslim, black and and other racial minority communities desperately need you to help speak out against racism, misogyny and intolerance! [Details]
Please come! President Elect Trump was quite clear in his daily attacks on the campaign trail that there is a New Order of things stateside. It's an ugly sight indeed! Don't let any of our fellow Canadians, whom might be confused or misguided, think that is acceptable or okay here!
Teachers and Education Workers: Our local and provincial CUPE, ETFO, OECTA, and OSSTF union affiliates can walk the solidarity walk for inclusiveness beyond the classroom, for our students living here, by coming and bringing your flags along. But will you? Remember, our actions speak louder than words! Enough talk, talk, talk!
The event could use some teacher volunteers to help out as marshals and so on. Many of us have extensive experience with that from over the years. If you can help out, please leave a message on Facebook @ Dana
It's time to put our foot down now, before it's too late! If you are in doubt about the very real fears that exist right here in Toronto please see my blog on last Sunday's rally @ Here!
Please also read the news links under "Toronto Ontario Canada" on this month's Teacher Free Speech November News + Views blog @ Here!
Rumours that this Saturday's rally has been cancelled are wrong! A counter rally is apparently planned, and the police have been consulted accordingly. Security arrangements are in place. Some of us are also volunteering to help marshal the event.
Say no to bigotry!
Hope to see you there!
