We are pleased to see that there is increased media attention on the important issue of migrant workers, worker abuse and the continuing decline in wages and employment standards here in B.C. as well as in other provinces across Canada.

The article by Adriana Paz and Chris Ramsaroop is based on a short video clip reported in the mainstream media. We want to ensure rabble readers have the full story.

The issue of supporting Temporary Foreign Workers (TFWs) is at the forefront of the B.C. Federation of Labour's (BCFED) work to ensure that no worker is treated as disposable.

Three apartheid policies enforced by Israel today

Photo: flickr/Libertinus

As previously discussed, apartheid refers to a system of discriminatory polices which divide a population along racial lines and give superior treatment to one race over another. The objective of these inhumane laws is to maintain the domination of one race. The system of apartheid implemented by Israel in the Palestinian territories is designed to oppress Palestinian Arabs and give preferential treatment to Israeli Jews. We will now explore the different apartheid policies enforced by Israel (Note: Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT) refers to East Jerusalem, West Bank and the Gaza Strip which have been under Israeli occupation since 1967)
