World Social Forum in Tunisia

A rally in Tunisia

The Social Justice Fund provided support to PSAC Québec member, André Michaud to join the 12-person FTQ delegation that attended the World Social Forum in Tunisia from March 26 to 30 March, 2013.  The aim of the delegation was to support the newly emerging democracies in the Middle East, with the specific aim of learning more about the union movement in the Middle East and to express solidarity with women, youth and other vulnerable sectors that are directly affected by war and repressive measures. Discussions also centered on the growth of precarious labour, the marginalization of large sectors of the world population, the impact of austerity programs and the challenges faced by the union movement around the globe.
