Support the Halifax 6

$6,540 of $6,000 goal

Have you ever been to jail for Justice? Well 6 of our friends recently have been! Austin Hiltz, Art Bouman, Justin Whitten, Brad Fougere, Darius Mirshahi, and Tony Tracy were arrested on Sunday December 2nd at the Halifax Mail Processing Plant.   The 6 have since been charged with mischief and obstruction; with another court date on January 4th for their pleas. 

As postal workers had their right to strike ripped away from them once again by back to work legislation; these folks took over the picket duty and stood on the line to demand  free collective bargaining and the right to strike for all workers. Now their rights have been impeded on! The 6 were arrested while  participating in a peaceful protest and now have had their right to peaceful assembly attacked by the Halifax Regional Police.

So now we need to do what we can to support the Halifax Six. Going to jail is expensive! Lets give them all our support which includes making a donation to ensure they have no financial burden as they fight for justice for all of us! They have shown us solidarity, now lets be sure to do the same.

Quote from Tony Tracy:

“The right to full and fair collective bargaining and the fundamental Charter-protected right to strike are always worth defending,” Tracy wrote. “Bosses and governments have never given us rights that we haven’t fought for, and those ‘rights’ are meaningless if not defended.”

Thank you all for your support so far. I am the CUPW Atlantic Regional Education & Organization officer and I am friends with the Halifax 6. I wanted to inform you all that I will be collecting the money on behalf of our 6 friends and I will ensure the money makes it to them. I am hoping to deliver the money to them no later than their court date on January 4th/2019. Thank you everyone. Solidarity!
