The following is the message from Andrew Lochhead, Labour Arts Coordinator:
The Workers Arts & Heritage Centre is pleased to partner with Public Services International & The Quality Public Services Action Now Campaign,
Hamilton Wentworth Elementary Teachers Local & Hamilton District Labour Council to present a very special screening of We Are Wisconsin.
The critically acclaimed film, that debuted at Toronto’s Hot Doc’s festival last year, tells the story of the public outcry against Wisconsin Governor
Scott Walker’s controversial budget repair bill that sought/seeks to strip public employees of their collective bargaining rights, and why it matters to us here in Ontario.
Following the screening we will convene a special panel discussion featuring the film’s director Amie William, participants from the film along with local labour leaders.
The panel will be moderated by WAHC’s Executive Director, Amanda Coles.
Admission is by donation, free food on site, cash bar.
Seating is limited to 100 persons, so please arrive early to avoid disappointment.
Join us in celebrating and standing in solidarity with public employees everywhere.
