Invisibles & Disposables: International Migrants' Day - Dec. 17, 2017

By Mike Ma

We, Kathy Dunster, Davina Bhandar and I, attended a wonderful solidarity event organized by Migrante and Migrant Workers' Dignity Association today. It was held on a rainy Sunday afternoon --in honour of International Migrants' Day-- in a program room at the Kensington Branch Library of the VPL. The room was packed with people eager to discuss and learn more about the plight of migrant workers. A few films/videos were shown that chronicles the struggles of Migrants in Canada. This was followed by ample discussion and friendly conversation. There was copious amounts of tasty food and snacks for everyone to nibble on while we watched and discussed. The delicious food was prepared by volunteers and donated by Discovery Organics and Kensington Branch, VPL.

Migrant Workers' Dignity Association is a small but mighty organization and we hope to support and organize with them in the future!
