In recent years, resource extraction has intensified under the Harper government in Canada, as capitalist profit-making is increasingly "fueled" by the rape and plunder of the land and its resources, especially the ancestral lands of Indigenous peoples.
As part of its work to defend land defenders and build people's power, the ILPS-Canada Commission in Support of Indigenous People's Struggles is supporting grassroots women from the Ojibway Nation of Saugeen located in northwestern Ontario, Canada.

Message from the May 1st Movement on May Day 2013
In 1886, 127 years ago, European immigrant workers marched in Chicago to demand an eight hour work day. The massacre and execution of trade unionists that followed has been commemorated every year since, in almost every corner of the world on May 1st -- International Workers Day.
Justice for Grand Isle Shipyard Workers
On Monday, 18th March, the day after the death anniversary of Flor Contemplacion, supporters of the Justice for Grand Isle Shipyard Filipino Workers campaign staged a picket in front of the Philippine Embassy in Washington, D.C. to demand the resignation of Philippine Ambassador Cuisia.
Flor Contemplacion was a Filipina domestic worker who was executed in Singapore in 1995 based on what many felt were unfounded charges of murder. Flor became a symbol of neglect by the Philippine government towards overseas Filipino workers (OFW) and galvanized a global network of migrant rights advocates through Migrante International.
