Canadian Labour International Film Festival Screening
5:15 PM - 6:45 PM MST Ironworkers 720 Hall 10512 122 St NW Edmonton, AB T5N 1M6
Join us for pizza & donuts (courtesy of Ironworkers 720) while we air a hybrid screenings of three films selected by the Canadian Labour International Film Festival (CLiFF). We have selected films that matter to Edmontonians and we hope to see you there and that you invite your friends, family, and neighbours as well.
Meeting Human Needs examines schemes used by conservative governments to privatize public services and the consequences suffered by communities. In exposing these schemes, the video makes the case for a collective future that protects and expands public services for all.
HIPPOCRATES: A Guide to Treating Healthcare Workers An Edmontonian filmmaker exposes and makes fun of Premier Kenny and his brazen mission to privatize the health care system, following in the footsteps of Ralph Klein before him. Many great interviews with experts who explain why privatization will not serve Albertans. An entertaining and informative documentary about why profits should be kept out of health care.
When We Fight In the second largest school district in the United States, in Los Angeles, California, 98% of teachers vote to authorize a strike. Watch as one of the largest educator strikes in modern U.S. history unfolds in real-time, highlighting the stories and leadership of some of the women who led it, from union leaders to classroom teachers.
From strike vote to contract vote, When We Fight goes behind the picket lines, documenting how and why teachers strike.
The screening will be followed by our November General Membership meeting so please feel free to stick around as our guest and see how the Edmonton & District Labour Council (EDLC) is works and the initiatives we are involved in.
