    The Struggle to Restore the Dignity of Labor - By Kim Petersen, Disident Voice
    On 18 October, unionized municipal workers and civil servants rallied at the Parliament Buildings in Victoria "in a noisy, raucous demonstration that paralysed Victoria's downtown and disrupted bus service and government services for much of the day." [8]

    BC Federation of Labour Secretary-Treasurer Angela Shira exclaimed, "It's hard to believe that twenty-first century democratic governments still don't understand that people don't give up their rights without a fight."

    The corporate media, without surprise, lambasted unions and their workers for defying the law. The Globe and Mail whined, "It was bad enough when public-school teachers in British Columbia thumbed their noses at the law and continued an illegal strike. Now the Canadian Union of Public Employees and other unionists in both the public and private sector have joined the teachers in their defiance." [9]
