overdose prevention site open house kicked ass

19 May

Yesterday our overdose prevention site had an open house where guests can see how it runs and what we do. This open house happened so people can see we are up and running in a permanent location despite all the attacks that we endure from the lackey of Cambridge city council who hate the idea of a safe injection sites, tent citys homeless people and poor people in general.

We had representation from Hamilton and one reporter as well as other members of the community join us for timbits and discussion.As well as people who live in the neighbourhood cam to thank for the work we do.

Our permanent site is always in short supply of what we need and donations are appreciated. A short list of what we need is below. Thanks all who helped.

short rigs
pop/juice
water
food
straws
toilet paper
candles
blankets
Vein finder
naloxone

May day strike in kitchener a success

6 May

On May 1st 500 people gathered at Kitchener City hall to protest the Ford agenda. People there were from all walks of life. This action was part of a province wide strike. Despite all sectors being present there was not one word on the cuts being implemented against social services nor any discussion on the cuts to safe injection sites and how 1000s will die because of this.Talking to people in the crowd Myself and a reporter friend found out that 1 third of people showed up because of flyers, handed out day after day at the farMers Market and schools and stuff by people involved in the safe injection site and anti poverty work. When people asked if they could speak about this their voice of the toronto group Made it quite clear our role as poor people is to do the work and outreach and then shut up and get into line. despite this we spoke to lots people from groups and people froM the Multi cultural centre etc who were happy at our presence and the politics we brought to the event. In the future we as organized poor people and Minorites guillotine (1)will not be used to do all the work of postering and outreach to hear a bunch of white people soMe who said they spoke for the voiceless despite the fact the voiceless were refused to speak.NO THANKS IF YOU WANT AN ELECTION PLATFOR TO GET YOU NDP ELECTED DONT DRAG US INTO YOUR SHIT!!!!!!GOOD TO WORK BUT NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO SPEAK!!!Still despite the ineptitude racist transphobic and classist views of the so called legite organizers who did it on the backs of the people the working class did show up and took a stand and that is our beginning to working class lead resistance
