Anti Gentrification March and Tent City support Callout!!!

20 Aug

Due to the intensification of the gentrification process which aims to “rid the community of undesirable elements” to make the downtown “safe” for middle strata people we are seeing the displacement of people from poor and working class backgrounds. This process of social cleansing takes many forms, from the targeting and removal of low-income housing like David Street, to the displacement of poor people for the LRT. As community members living in the affected area we are calling on people to join us in an Anti-Gentrification March and tent city from September 19-21, 2014.

We will need:

On site volunteers

Prep volunteers

Food prep team

March Marshals

Donations

Tents

Food

Warm Clothing

Blankets

Tents

Coffee

Air mattresses

Etc.

Please contact us at Kitchener.tent.city@gmail.com and help us keep the downtown accessible for all
