Since 1996, in more than a dozen cities, labour and community groups have organized some of the largest and most creative demonstrations in recent Canadian history. The Days of Action have been a vital force to dislodge the Tory government of Mike Harris, and its "common-sense revolution." With photographs from all the events, this book celebrates the achievement of large-scale, peaceful, and meaningful protest. Vincenzo Pietropaolo has been documenting social change movements in Canada for years. An eleven-city odyssey of protest that began in London - Ontario - on a bitterly cold winter's day in 1995 and ended in Kingston on a sweet summer's day thirty months later, such that his keen professional eye brings to this book a wonderful sense of life and humour.

As Vincenzo like to say in his preface" During the various Days of Action, I would often purposefully lose myself in the crowd, to march and to photograph not as a distanced observer, but in solidarity. These photographs make up a sketchbook of my experience, my way of telling the story of the events in each city. I learned that it is important to stand up and be counted. it is even more for a photographer or storyteller. Resistance can be taken up in many forms. A sign in someone's window during the Hamilton protest proclaimed " resistance is fertile", while another in Windsor urged us to " fight for democracy." Sudbury's slogan was "Celebration of Resistance." I invite you to join me in this celebration.
