Six months have passed since the tragic accident that killed eleven people near Hampstead, Ontario. Amongst the dead were 9 migrant chicken catchers from Peru. The impact of this accident has been felt across the hemisphere as families struggle to cope in the wake of this accident. To commemorate the sixth month anniversary, Justicia for Migrant Workers (J4MW) is organizing a March and Vigil to commemorate this accident. The march and vigil, entitled ‘Remembering the Dead, Standing up for the Living’, will take place Sunday July 22, 2012 starting at noon.
The Plan: Sunday July 22, 2012 meet at 11 am at the Working Centre Cafe at 43 Queen St. South, Kitchener, ON. From here, cars and buses will leave together for the site. Join us back at The Working Centre at 2 pm for a reception.
