At the CAW Constitutional and Collective Bargaining Convention in Toronto a few weeks back, delegates and guests received a print copy of the attached poster, entitled “Our Voice. Our Streets.”
This poster was commissioned by the CAW Communications department and produced by a super talented Toronto-area graphic designer/artist Tariq Sami (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Building on our convention theme “A Better World is Possible”, this poster depicts a variety of significant worker-lead and worker-supported popular struggles around the world, in the wake of the global financial mess of 2008-2009. It’s intended as both an educational tool as well as a medium of inspiration for activists.
It impresses upon us that the struggles we face in our workplaces and communities here at home are being played out, by workers like us, around the world. In many cases, workers are winning the fight. A better world is, in fact, possible when workers can unite under common cause and common struggle.
