Solidarity: The Largest Political Protest in British Columbia's History

Creator(s): BC Labour Heritage Centre

In 1983, British Columbia experienced the largest political protest in its history. Resistance to repressive legislation and a slashed provincial budget lasted several months, in the form of massive demonstrations, rallies, petitions and an escalating strike plan.

More than 35 years later, this exhibit explores the diverse experiences and recollections of workers and activists involved in this historic moment, and pays tribute to the power of solidarity between communities.
