The Victoria Labour Council will be in attendance at the Miner’s Memorial Weekend June 14-16, 2024 in Cumberland, B.C.  It is a weekend of reflection, solidarity and honouring those who fought for the rights of all workers.  It is an event that brings together the labour community on the Island and beyond.

From the website: “June 14-16, 2024, marks the 39th anniversary of Miners Memorial in Cumberland.  Every year since 1986 community members, organizers, activists, historians, musicians, families and the labour community have come together to commemorate the sacrifices of workers around the world and right here in Cumberland. Although decades have passed since the last mines closed in Cumberland, the memories of mining and the deep sense of grief over the loss of life underground remains.”
