May Day is an historic time to celebrate the labour movement and everything workers around the world have accomplished. It is also a time to renew the fight for labour rights across this country. Common Causes is doing just that.
This Saturday launches a Week of Action for Workers' Rights. With actions happening across the country, we are standing with our sisters and brothers in the union movement to send a strong message to governments everywhere that attack workers.

Parliament resumes in Ottawa today, after more than a month's recess, and Idle No More is holding a global day of action which features new allies joining their movement in defence of Indigenous lands and rights.
"The vision of Idle No More is rooted in the protection of water, air, land and future generations and is guided by Indigenous ways of knowing and the rights of Indigenous sovereignty," said Idle No More co-founder Nina Wilson. "This movement is about education and the revitalization of Indigenous peoples as both knowledge holders and leaders and aims to achieve this through awareness and empowerment of all people."
