On September 3, 2007, many sectors of the organized labour movement converged in downtown Toronto for the annual labour day parade, bringing with them a wide range of demands to improve workplace conditions, and job security across Canada. Amongst them was a group aiming to bring a more international focus to this year's parade, the Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid, or CAIA. Marching under the banner "Stand up for Palestinian workers", the Labour for Palestine contingent organized by CAIA was calling on Canadian workers to stand in solidarity with the labour movement in Palestine, where workers suffer some of the worst conditions in the world, largely due to the 40-year old Israeli occupation.

In this report, we will hear some of the voices from the Labour for Palestine contingent. They reflect on workers' struggles at home, in Palestine, and draw lessons from the labour movement's role in toppling apartheid in South Africa.
