Tent City report back and organizing meeting a success

23 Sep

On September 18th comrades from Tent City as well as friends and supporters gathered to discuss the successes and failures of tent city as well as ways to move forward. Out of this discussion it became quite clear that despite the victory of the action the contradictions that gave rise to tent city are not yet resolved.

To further move things to their logical conclusion the people at this meeting came forward with a three point program that will create a more egalitarian Kitchener 1. Those individuals who signed up for housing whom have not been housed must be housed immediately. 2. Stop the war on the poor and end social cleansing 3. Send social and welfare workers into the community to provide services to those in need

This Monday the conclusions of this meeting and the three demands will be presented to city council at 7pm in the council chambers.14423742_10157414220855632_1273949988_o
