Celebration of Mayday in Toronto

Dear sir,

I read the reports of several May Day rallies in India and abroad in the last issue. I want to share a brief report of our program in Toronto.

Ghadar Heritage organisation and Helping Hands in Toronto celebrated May Day and organised a meeting in a very revolutionary atmosphere which was attended by over 60 people.

Hardip welcomed everyone and called for women and youth to come forward and participate in the activities of the community.

Dr. Baljinder Sekhon spoke in detail about the Hay market massacre in Chicago and talked about how the international working class day was established since then. He said that the working class at that time demanded eight hours for work, eight hours for rest and eight hours for taking care of family. But these days many people are forced to work even longer hours in many sectors of economy.

Nahar Aujla talked about the struggle to raise the minimum wage.

Raj Virk talked about the strike at York University. Since 5th March, York contract faculty, teaching and research assistants are on strike. He explained how university management is trying to falsify and spread rumours against their just strike. He firmly expressed the view that workers are determined to continue the strike until their demands are met. The gathering expressed solidarity for the striking staff.

Gurdev Singh talked about struggles of working class. He said, that the working class while fighting and waging struggle for their immediate demands, must play its historic mission of overthrowing this system of exploitation and establish its rule.

The meeting concluded in a very warm and enthusiastic atmosphere with the performance of Gidha dance.

Yours,

Harpreet

Call of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 30th August, 2012

Working class representatives from all over the country are gathering on 4th September, at a time when a titanic struggle is going on in our country. The struggle is between the majority of toiling and exploited people and a minority of exploiters. It is between the majority whose labour expands wealth and the minority who enjoy the fruits of wealth creation on the basis of their private property and positions of power.
