Tent City Day 1

17 Jun

Yesterday June 16th people congregated at city hall to launch the anti gentrification march
that would give rise to tent city. After speeches, people took the streets, the condo developers fearing the protestors would target
them shut down there office one hour early to escape accountability. The march ended up in Victoria Park which
was then liberated by the people. A local lawyer did a know your rights workshop and food was served. this was followed by live music.
As tents were being set up there was a spirit of resistance despite the police presense. All in all the first day was good.
