Migrant workers in Ontario embark on ‘Pilgrimage to Freedom’

Migrant workers in Ontario embark on ‘Pilgrimage to Freedom’ this Thanksgiving weekend | rabble.ca

Show Notes:

Migrant workers grow, harvest and process much of the food Canadians enjoy, but instead of feasting at the dinner table this coming Thanksgiving weekend, a great many of migrant workers from the fields, farms and factories will undertake the “Pilgrimage to Freedom”, a historic and arduous march of more than 50 kilometres from Leamington to the Windsor’s Monument for Freedom, dedicated to the underground railroad that brought slaves to freedom in Canada. Tzazna, with Justicia for Migrant Workers talks about why.

Justicia For Migrant Workers is a volunteer-run collective that strives to promote the rights of migrant farm workers (participating in the Canadian Seasonal Agricultural Workers Program and the Low Skilled Workers Program) and farm workers without status.
