National Day Of Remembrance & Action On Violence Against Women

Posted in Human Rights, Press Release, and Unifor Local 88

Today, we remember the 14 young women killed on December 6, 1989 at l’École Polytechnique de Montréal by an act of gender-based violence. We have a responsibility not only today, on the 30th anniversary of this horrific tragedy, but everyday to stand against gender-based violence.
