* Homes for People, not Profit for Real Estate!
* Homes not Jails!
* Homes not Pipelines!
* Rent Control not Social Control!
Join the Downtown Eastside Women Centre Power of Women Group as we continue to march for housing, childcare, and healthcare for all low-income residents in the DTES. We want no more evictions, no more displacement, and no more gentrification in our neighourhood. We know that the growing number of cops and condos in the DTES is part of a larger pattern to destroy and privatize neighourboods, communities, and the land. We want to live free: free from BC Housing controls, free from violence against women, and free from this system that is hurting and killing us.
We invite groups to bring their banners and anything else for our festive march. All genders are welcome and celebrated. Please bring your drums and regalia. This march is child-friendly and there will be a rest-vehicle for elders. Spread the word! Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 778 885 0040
