Sisters and Brothers,
I have been to Hamilton many times and I understand the situation you are presently in.
I can't get across the border because the same rotten corporate controlled governments of Liberals and Conservatives now attacking you, deported me; if I could cross the border I would be there in Hamilton with you because the steelworkers of Hamilton, the OFL, CLC, USW-Canada, many members of the Ontario NDP and Hamilton and District Labour Council stood with me and my family as we faced deportation from Canada because of my outspoken views and activities against racism and in support of worker's rights.
I think you are leading the way in showing people how working people can fight-back and win.
Please let me know what we, south of the border, can do in solidarity in support of your struggles to protect your jobs and your livelihoods.
All workers in North America and around the world are now engaged in struggles against Bay Street, Wall Street and The Square Mile which pits corporate greed against human needs.
Yours in solidarity and struggle,
Alan L. Maki,
Director of Organizing,
Midwest Casino Workers Organizing Council
