Justice for Ned Livingston Peart: Solidarity Rally and Human Rights Tribunal Hearing

Friday, June 28, 2013 - 13:30

Justicia for Migrant Workers (J4MW) invites the community to attend the closing day of the historic Human Rights Tribunal examining the workplace death of Ned Livingston Peart, a Jamaican migrant farm worker who was killed working in a tobacco farm in rural Ontario. This case is intended to bring forward changes to prevent workplace deaths and injuries and to improve working and living conditions of migrant farmworkers in the province. There has never been an inquest into the death of a migrant worker under the Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program in Ontario or anywhere in Canada. 

We need you to help us fill the Human Rights Tribunal for the last day of the hearing (9:30 am to 4:30pm) and raise your voices with us at 12:30 to demand justice for Ned at a rally outside the Tribunal
