Workers on Labour Day

The September 5th 2011 Labour Day march, rally and BBQ brought hundreds of people throughout the day to the South Commons in Halifax.  The annual event is organized by the Halifax-Dartmouth and District Labour Council. 

After the march from Victoria Park to the Commons, all ages stayed for speeches by Megan Leslie, Darrell Dexter, Kyle Buott, and Rick Clarke.

'Capitalism isn't working for workers' T-shirts were modeled by many people at the event, as well as pins 'Keep Water Public'.

Listen to excerpts from the speeches and music!

Apologies for not including Megan Leslie's speech, it was lost to the digital world.
