1986 NAPE Strike

30 Years of Photojournalism: The 1986 NAPE Strike was particularly acrimonious even for a Newfoundland government workers strike. Police started dragging strikers away when they blocked the west wing of the Confederation Building. It was also the first time that union leaders were charged and convicted by the government.

This was a bonus assignment while back home in St. John's to cover a trans Atlantic balloon crossing and the start of Rick Hansen's cross Canada leg of his Man in Motion around the world wheelchair journey.

I think that is it for the black & white print box. Photos added to the project folder. …over there in the left side column.

Considering the news out of Haiti I'll dive into my Haiti file next. I have made a couple of trips to Haiti. The last time was in the summer of 1996 with Canada's Royal 22nd Regiment during their UN mission.
