Surrey Steals from the Homeless!
October 3, 2016- 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
RALLY AND MARCH
When: 3:00 pm, Monday Oct 3
Where: 135A Street (near 106th Ave), Surrey
Every day the RCMP, Surrey bylaw officers and city workers come to “The Strip” (135A Street) in order to force homeless residents to take down their tents, pack up their belongings and make everything moveable. And every day they confiscate somebody’s possessions because they consider them unattended or just garbage.
But homeless residents of “The Strip” are fighting back. We will be marching to Surrey City Hall to protest the city’s orchestrated and relentless theft of our belongings. We demand that the City of Surrey stop stealing our stuff.
Food will be provided at the end of the event, around 5pm on the 135A strip
We will be organizing transportation to this march so other displaced and evicted communities can support the Surrey homeless in their struggle. To get a ride from Maple Ridge, Abbotsford, or elsewhere, and to travel together by transit from Vancouver, contact AAD: organize@stopdisplacement.
Organized by residents of The Strip and Alliance Against Displacement
