Ending Discrimination

In solidarity against violence and systemic racism

July 8, 2016

The world is reeling from the devastating shootings in the United States this week. First, two black men were killed by police officers. Then, during a peaceful protest against those shootings, five police officers were shot dead and another seven were injured.

“We are all experiencing profound grief and anger right now. But as we take time to mourn the victims and condemn these acts of violence, we must still remain focused on the core issues raised by black communities and movements like Black Lives Matter,” said Canadian Labour Congress Executive Vice-President Marie Clarke Walker.

“As a long-time labour leader I want to stress that unions are committed to continuing to peacefully confront the systemic causes of all forms of racism, including anti-black violence, in the U.S., Canada and around the world. We will continue to work with our allies to push for change and to build a better and more equitable world for our children,” Walker added.
