The cuts to Legal Aid Clinics in Ontario has been devastating and the Association of Community Legal Aid Clinics has called for a province wide day of protest to be held on July 30th.
The Kinna aweya Legal Aid Clinic here in Thunder Bay is joining the action and is holding pop-up events at City Hall, Minnesota Park and Bay St. as well as a BBQ at their office on Cumberland St.
The Thunder Bay & District Injured Workers Support Group has decided to support this protest by holding a protest march and rally on Tuesday July 30th.
The protest march will begin at the OPSEU office at 326 Memorial Ave (beside the Merla Mae) at 1:00 pm this Tuesday July 30th and will proceed down Algoma St. to the Injured Workers memorial beside the Hoito restaurant for speeches and a rally in support of Kinna aweya and all Legal Aid Clinics in Ontario
We are asking everyone to come out to raise their voices in protest to these cuts to the Legal Aid Clinics that provide such valuable and necessary services to people struggling in their every day life.
Please come out and join us. If you are unable to join the march please try to make it to the Kinna aweya office BBQ at 85 S. Cumberland St. from 1 to 4 pm.
