last May, bikers occupied the state capital for a weekend with the same demands as the truckers. The organization was transparent and everything went smoothly.
Mobilize for access to abortion
In addition, the June 24 decision of the United States Supreme Court overturning the historic Roe v. Wade (1973), who decriminalized abortion in the United States, found echoes in Canada.
About fifty people gathered outside Parliament on June 27 to protest the decision. We have been reminded that Canadians must remain vigilant as access to abortion remains limited in some provinces.
Isabelle Cousineau, Project and Communications Manager at Law Outaouaisone of the organizations present at the mobilization said it feared “the rise of anti-abortion movements in Canada due to the influence of American politics.”
“We’ve been seeing an increase in these movements in Canada for a number of years. We see them increasingly mobilizing near abortion clinics, being vocal and not shy about making women feel bad about having access to legitimate services… They work a lot against shame.”
