Sisters and Brothers,

 

You shoot for the moon, even if you missed you land among the stars. by Yumna Afzaal,who was murdered with her family with 3 generation standing on a traffic light after an evening walk at London, Ontario just because they were Muslim.

Sisters and Brothers,

 

You shoot for the moon, even if you missed you land among the stars. by Yumna Afzaal,who was murdered with her family with 3 generation standing on a traffic light after an evening walk at London, Ontario just because they were Muslim.

Never allow anyone to describe, who you are? You describe yourself and be proud of yourself.
The Local is calling for a national action summit on Islamophobia and systemic Islamophobia.

Everyone needs to feel safe while walking on the street with their family and children. Do we ever need to answer the question from our children "How Muslim they look?" " Is it a Canadian look", while in the presence of others?

All children at school and communities should not live in FEAR.

Let us all become the ambassador of love. Love will triumph hate. We are in a war against visible and non-visible hate.

All forms of hate must stop. Hate should not poison our society. No one should target others by their race, color, religion or any prohibited grounds of discrimination. We all have a collective responsibility to be the voice of each other and counter hate.

Look around and stand up against all form of hate.

The struggle continues,

 

In Solidarity,

WE HAVE TO STAND UP AND FIGHT MANAGEMENT’S DEMANDS FOR GROUP 2 THEY ARE SIMPLY RIDICULOUS

 

Sisters, Brothers, Siblings:

The demands the corporation has put in for Variable Work Week, No Route Ownership, Permanent Flexible Employee’s and major restructuring of letter carrier work are pathetic.

It is time to get ready to stand up in Solidarity and fight! The Toronto Local is strongly opposed to management’s shenanigans and are preparing to battle.  Feet on the street is the only way to win with this employer, the longer the line the shorter the strike.  We need to stop attacking each other and focus on attacking the boss.
