Annie Buller (1895–1973) was a prominent labour and political activist. Raised in a working-class family in Montreal, she became a member of the Communist Party of Canada in 1922, for which she managed party organizing and publications. Over her career, she fought for the rights of workers and the unemployed, was involved in a number of strikes, campaigned against fascism, and was arrested twice. After retiring from full-time party organizing for the CPC, she continued to be devoted to political and social activism and, for example, spoke against the Vietnam War.
