Justice Not Charity March and Poor People’s Radio
December 2, 2016- 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
This will be Raise the Rates’ fifth annual march and Poor People’s Radio show to tell the CBC and the world that we need HIGHER WELFARE RATES, not more charity! For 5 years the CBC has refused to discuss the root cause of so much poverty in BC on its annual Food Bank Day. So once again, Raise the Rates will march up to their event to tell them that we want JUSTICE, NOT CHARITY.
Meet at 11 am outside the Carnegie Community Centre at Main and Hastings, Vancouver, unceded Coast Salish Territories. We will march to the CBC building at 700 Hamilton Street at West Georgia Street to arrive around noon.
Our Poor People’s Radio program outside the CBC will feature music and real-life stories about how horrible it is to have to rely on food banks to survive. There will be some free snacks!
Come on out to let the world know that it’s not okay that 100,000 people in BC are forced to go to food banks to avoid starving! JUSTICE, NOT CHARITY!
