In Vancouver, global labor rallies for jobs


Vancouver, Canada - On day three of the International Trade Union Confederation's Congress the delegates, from trade union federation's around the world, including the American Federation of Labor - Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO), took a break from their deliberations to rally for jobs and a just economy for workers.

In a spirited demonstration outside the Vancouver Convention Center, speakers called for more action and street heat for jobs, taxes on the banks and financial institutions, re-regulation of financial markets, restoring public services, and defending labor rights, including the right to organize and the right to strike.

They further demanded a reordering of global priorities, away from war and towards peaceful green development and meeting human needs instead of corporate greed.
