Union Zindabad! South Asian Canadian Labour History in British Columbia is a partnership with the South Asian Studies Institute (University of the Fraser Valley) in the South Asian Canadian Legacy Project.
It explores the long and complex relationship with the labour movement. From early exclusionary practices to a recognition that racism is a tool of the boss to divide workers, the tenacity and strength of community has always been forward looking. As a result, the labour movement has benefited from strong South Asian leaders, activists and members.
South Asian workers within the forestry industry in the Cowichan Lake region are featured heavily throughout.
