Party Against Displacement
June 27, 2016- 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Super InTent City has survived for 8 months and accomplished so much in that time, including saving lives, building community, asserting homeless people’s political power, and getting a commitment for 178 units of long-term housing towards the crisis of 1400 people living outside or in emergency shelters.
On June 27-28 Super InTent CityZens are once again going to court to fight the BC government’s attempt to displace the camp. Show some love by coming to the camp to celebrate Super InTent CityZens’ resilience and all their accomplishments, and to provide support after a long day in court.
If you can make food (even if you can’t come to the event): visithttp://tinyurl.com/hs3t3h2 or check the pinned post in the “Discussion” tab to see what other people are bringing, then add a comment to the pinned post or email email@example.com to sign up to put together food, pop, or coffee for a 5 PM serving. If you can’t come, we will do our best to arrange pickup of pre-made food/drinks from your place on the day of the event. If you can come feel free to bring art supplies too, to make posters and placards showing love for the camp! Or if you live far away or won’t be in town, you can email a support message to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll print it and bring it to the camp.
***This event is being held on the traditional and current territories of the Lekwungen people. Dispossession and displacement go hand in hand. Disproportionately high numbers of Indigenous people are homeless, as a result of colonialism.***
