In the spirit of international workers’ solidarity, the VDLC, BCGEU, and CULE are co-coordinating a solidarity tour to the Philippines to:
learn about the daily lives and struggles directly from the Filipino people, particularly those involved in the struggle for workers’ and other human rights in the Philippines.
begin to understand the historical and current political and economic relationship between Canada and the Philippines.
continue and deepen the existing partnerships between Canadian unions and Philippine organizations to work in solidarity with Filipinos in their struggle for workers’ and other human rights.
gain advocates in the Canadian trade union movement on the Philippines situation to strengthen international solidarity between Canada and the Philippines.
