Tiohtià:ke (Montreal, unceded Mohawk territory), April 2, 2019 — On this Global Day for Invisible Labour, the activists of the Montreal Coalition for Paid Internships call for participation in the Demonstration Against the Invisibilization of the Work of Women that will take place from 4PM today. In addition to the interns and students on strike, several organizations that also fight for the recognition of invisible, unpaid, and reproductive labour will take to the street. This is the case especially for Stella, a group that defends the rights of sex workers, and for the Quebec Association of Nurses (Association québécoise des infirmières et infirmiers, or AQII).
